Wildflowers and Native Grasses

Wildflowers and native grasses are at home on many Kansas roadways. They grow on steep slopes, rocky areas and in large meadow-like areas where mowing is not necessary. They help brighten the view, add variety and create "Kansas Character." Once established, they also cost less to maintain. KDOT's wildflower signs emphasize their locations and will communicate a special mowing policy for protected areas of the roadway.
