Native Flora

The Midwest is no mere breadbasket. Wildflowers sprinkle color through inland seas of grasses, and abundant trees of various families break up the plains. Transform your garden into a teeming microcosm of the surprising prairie at the Native Plant Sale, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at the City Market (Fifth Street and Walnut). The Missouri Prairie Foundation, which works to protect and preserve the native grasslands that make our area unique, sponsors the sale. All proceeds benefit the foundation and the crucial environmental protection it orchestrates. For more information, call 816-779-6708.
