Come purchase native plants for your yard at the 2021 Wildflower Market on May 8th, from 9am-12pm. There will be plants available from The Nature Institute, Green Thumb Nursery, Lewis and Clark Restoration Ecology, River City Natives, Pure Air Natives and Forest ReLeaf of Missouri.
Native plants are a wonderful addition to any planting because they will attract valuable pollinators, birds and other animals, will be easy to maintain, and will thrive in our variable Midwestern seasons. As with all plants you place in your yard, do a bit of research to find the plants that will do the best in the conditions. To help you with this endeavor, we have put together a guide with the plants that The Nature Institute will have available. The guide included growing conditions (light and water requirements) as well as bloom period, color, and size.
