Prairie plants are finding their way back into Iowa’s landscapes! Native plants are a great choice for your yard or garden projects for many reasons.

  • Native flowers and grasses are well adapted to the local climate, and can better withstand the severe drought, flooding and temperatures of Iowa.
  • Native plants require little to no fertilizers.
  • Native plants are resistant to local diseases, insects, and other pests, as well as provide habitat and food for local wildlife, including our insect pollinators!
