My pollinator population is growing by leaps and bounds! Gorgeous first year butterfly w**d (planted in the fall).
Enjoying my Clapsing Coneflowers
Do you have a good plant to place around a patio to ward off mosquitoes?
Are you open for walk in purchases? I have some areas to fill but have no idea what put there. I need to look and touch and ask questions. Thanks.
Well, hello beautiful! One of my many scores from Sow Wild Natives!
Do you know of an app that identifies natives?
Hi, is your nursery open 4/19-4/20 this week? Thanks!
I had so much fun buying new plants for my yard. I can hardly wait to see what you have later on. I have a question, with the weather forecasted to be a hard freeze next weekend, some people say to cover the plants with a sheet and others say to cover it with plastic. What's your best advice? I don't want to lose the plants I just got into the ground.
Thank you for all of my wonderful wildflowers. Everything I planted flourished! Thanks so much! Have a great winter! 🌬️ See you in the Spring. I have a LOT more yard that needs wildflowers. :)
Will have to go look at the Natives...I think I need some! :)
Look who survived the winter and is excited for the spring weather! Can't wait for flowers!
Visited for the first time today. What an amazing vision these two have for their property. Our community will greatly benefit in the coming years from Sow Wild Native!

We grow and sell Missouri and Kansas native wildflowers and grasses.

Operating as usual

The Missouri evening primrose looks absolutely stunning this week.

When we say be patient for your milkw**d, we really mean it. It's almost the end of May and we're still getting butterfly milkw**d popping up. And check out these two milkw**d side by side. One has been up for about a week and a half and the one next to it just started coming up in the last few days.

Our first iris of the year is blooming! As the shining blue star fades but still looks gorgeous.

There are so many amazing native plants that it can be hard to decide which ones to buy. Let us help. This weekend we have a few "bee boxes" and "monarch boxes" for sale. These boxes include 8-14 preselected plants to help you attract bees or monarch butterflies to your yard. Each box is slightly different (we wouldn't want you to have the same garden as your neighbor - we need more diversity) and designed with plants that will bloom from spring through fall.

We're open Friday and Saturday 9AM-4PM. And don't forget to bring back your empty pots so we can reuse them.

Most of our plants don't bloom in the pots (part of the beauty of native plants), but here are a few that do.

Ohio spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis), woodland spiderwort (Tradescantia ernestiana), pale beardtongue (Penstemon pallidus), clammy cuphea (Cuphea viscosissima), columbine (Aquilegia canadensis), woodland phlox (Phlox divaricata), partridge pea (Chamaecrista fasciculata), and rose verbena (Glandularia canadensis).

Native plants are so pretty! :) And come in so many different shapes and sizes. 💜

May Garden Stop #8 of 8:

This garden was started shortly after the current owners purchased it in 2020. Water issues required the yard be regraded, so the owners asked the contractor to remove all the grass. This quarter acre lot has been an ambitious undertaking for one person with limited funds. Creating this Certified Wildlife Habitat has pushed the limits and conventions of city ordinances, but also seeks to gain acceptance by the surrounding urbanites. Glendale Garden has been a challenging but fulfilling personal project that is continually changing, developing, and evolving. As a first-timer, creating and cultivating this native plant garden right next to an HOA has been an ongoing experiment that provides huge opportunities to grow and learn. Come see what has worked, what has failed, and to learn from this gardener’s experience on how to start and not to start your native garden.
This garden will be on tour all three months so you can view the seasonal changes of the garden.

May Garden Stop #7 of 8:

This garden was created on a dying turf area that required a ton of water to have the slightest amount of grass. Now it requires no water, provides tons of creatures with food, shelter, and drink, and is beautiful year-round. It is mostly native plants with a few ornamentals that were given by family members. The little path was created to give kids a route to the bus stop from the house. Meandering through towering plants and watching the bugs enjoy themselves is the best way to start the day! Green mulch is on the docket for plantings this year to help cut back on the amount of mulch used to keep the w**ds down. This garden will be on tour all three months so you can view the seasonal changes of the garden.

May Garden Stop #5 of 8:

This garden was established in 2020 and replaced almost 5,000 square feet of residential sod. Its gravel paths and limestone boulder benches are designed to draw nearby park goers in and to showcase ways native plants can be used in formal urban settings to reduce environmental impact and provide food sources and habitat to urban wildlife and pollinators. The garden is home to over forty native species of flowers, grasses, and trees, many of which are labeled to help visitors
identify plants they might like to incorporate into their own personal gardens. This garden will be on tour all three months so you can view the seasonal changes of the garden.

May Garden Stop #4 of 8:

Inspired by Doug Tallamy, 7 years ago this gardener began removing non-native and exotic plants from the garden and replacing them with native trees, shrubs, and perennials. The wildlife in the yard has increased tenfold! Though this beautiful garden was established several years ago, it is always in flux. In summer of 2021, a massive oak tree fell, exposing a previously shady garden to full south sun. In addition to these changes, the owner is working to get some green mulch established. This garden is an ongoing experiment to see which native plants will thrive in which location and constantly adding new plants to attract specific invertebrates. Come see what's flying, crawling, or humming in this garden this spring.

May Garden Stop #3 of 8:

This Kansas City, MO neighborhood would like to share how they have incorporated natives in common areas that benefit the whole neighborhood. They have a traffic triangle that was planted primarily with natives that has been thriving for the past 8 years. There is also a 3-year-old neighborhood garden that includes raised beds for vegetables, mostly native flowering plants, an orchard, and a pavilion.

May Garden Stop #2 of 8:

This is a home garden on an urban double lot. It features an integrated water catchment system (raingardens, guttering, tank, and subdriveway storage) and multiple ecologies - prairie, savanna, woodland, glade - all joined by stone pathways. It also features a more semiformal front garden that blends into the wilder spaces in the whole yard. This includes a sedge front lawn, which is being upgraded this spring to change sedges from Carex praegracilis to Carex pensylvanica. It's a nice example of plant layering for smaller spaces.

May Garden Stop #1 of 8:

Our first garden stop is a public MDC garden with official tour guides. This tour requires separate registration on MDC's website: https://mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/184117.
The Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center has been home to native plant gardens since its opening in 2001. The South Pond bed was a trouble area that had become overrun by Bermuda grass and a switchgrass nativar. It was trenched and replanted with Missouri native plants based on a design by Native Landscape Specialist, Alix Daniel in the fall of 2020. The Butterfly Garden was redesigned and replanted in phases starting 5 years ago. Its main goal is to attract and support as
many pollinators as possible and houses many showcase species. Primrose Prairie is the newest garden designed by Native Landscape Specialist, Cydney Ross, featuring 16 species and over 300 plants. The goal is to showcase Missouri prairie and glade species while attracting nocturnal pollinators like moths.
