Grow Native!

Welcome to Grow Native!

"Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it."
~ E.O. Wilson, Biodiversity

Grow Native! is a native plant marketing and education program of the Missouri Prairie Foundation. Grow Native! helps protect and restore biodiversity by increasing conservation awareness of native plants and their effective use in urban, suburban, and rural developed landscapes. Through collaboration with consumers, private industry, non-profit organizations, and government agencies, Grow Native! aims to significantly increase the demand and use of native plants in the Lower Midwest—Missouri, southern Illinois, eastern Kansas, and northern Arkansas.
