The St. Louis Audubon Society had tour guides to walk you through the garden and explain the various species of flowers and to answer questions. It was a wonderful tour and we both learned a lot about native Missouri flowers.
I took photos of my favorites, hoping someday to include these plants in my own garden.
|This is Cardinal Flower. What a fun flower to have in the garden!!|
|This is American Beauty berry. Those purple berries really show up!|
|This is trumpet vine. My grandmother had this growing in her backyard.|
|This is goldenrod and butterfly bush together. What a pretty combination of flowers.|
One of the best sources that Sue shared was Missouri Wildflowers Nursery at www.mowildflowers.net. This site will answer many questions about planting Missouri wildflowers in your garden.
