Where Can I Buy Native Plants in Iowa?

We recommend that local genotype plant material be used for your restoration site. This insures that the plants you install will be highly adapted to your region, and this practice protects nearby wild plant populations from being overwhelmed by potentially mal-adapted genes. Therefore, we recommend that you purchase plant materials from a grower in your region.
