NATIVES

Over 100 Ozark Native Varieties In Stock

Native plants have grown in popularity over the years due to their climate tolerance, pest resistance, and ability to be self-sustaining.  We specialize in keeping hardy native plants in stock.

"Native Plant" is a term used to describe plants that occur naturally or have existed in an area for many years ("Naturalized Native"). These plants, if planted in the proper conditions, will thrive in the natural environment with minimal care and maintenance.
