Kansas City, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will host a native plant sale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center in Kansas City. This sale is organized by the Missouri Prairie Foundation (MPF).

Six native plant venders will have plants for sale. Visitors can peruse native wildflowers, grasses, sedges, ground covers, shrubs, and trees. Gardeners can also pre-order from some of the vendors.

“Choosing native plants for home landscaping is one of the best actions homeowners can take to make their yards or property as ecologically healthy as possible, as well as beautiful,” said Carol Davit, MPF executive director.

Vendors will include City Roots, Gaylena’s Garden, Ozark Soul, Missouri Wildflowers Nursery, Allendan Seed Company, and Down to Earth Services/Green Thumb Gardens. Check those vendor’s web sites for pre-order information.
