Why choose Native plants

Native plants fuel our natural communities, adapt through climatic changes and thrive in a wide range of growing conditions. As our natural habitats disappear, using native plants in your gardens and landscapes will provide nectar, pollen, seeds and a home for our insects, birds and other animals.

The native plants, animals and insects with which we coexist are an important part to our sense of place. The sights, sounds, smells, tastes and feel of a native plant garden bring awareness and connection to our surrounding world -- such as, the sight and sound of a tree frog calling to attract a mate while grasping the stem of a purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) or a monarch nectaring on a marsh milkweed (Asclepias incarnata).

Planting natives can also help responsibly control storm-water runoff. The vast amount and size of many of our native species' root systems have the ability to retain and filter rain waters. The Ozarks have been blessed with an abundance of springs and rivers. The purity of these water resources should be of utmost concern looking towards the future.

By using native plants in the LANDSCAPE one can achieve a formal garden or a naturalistic wonderland. Let us help you choose the right plants for the right places around your home. Convert your sterile, song-less landscape into a vibrant, full-of-life experience.
