We live in a beautiful state, and there are plenty of native Missouri plants you can select to finish your landscaping with. Choosing local flora means that the landscape will be hearty and low-maintenance which is why the following are some plants we highly recommend.
- Blue False Indigo and Purple Poppy Mallow will give the landscape colorful accents. These should be planted in the sun, and require moderate moisture.
- Buttonbush and Rose Verbena are also good choices. These grow in moderately moist soil and the flowers and fruits they create are absolutely marvelous. They’re perfect for adding a little color without being overwhelming.
- Cornus Florida and Copper Iris are popular options that when combined provide a nice contrast with one another. The white blossoms of the state tree coupled with copper hues of the Iris create a sense of balance and harmony throughout the landscape.
- Finally, Marsh Milkweed and Lizard’s tail are ideal for areas with high moisture content. Easy to plant and maintain, these native plants are always fashionable.
