Why Native Plants?

Across Iowa, our native prairie has been mostly eliminated by rural farming and urban development. However, we can help bring back important native species by incorporating them into landscaping at home! Here are some benefits of native plants:

  • Prairie plants benefit pollinators and birds by providing food sources giving them a tasty treat!
  • Prairie plants have deep roots that can help make your soil more like a sponge to soak up water.
  • Prairie plants can help improve water quality by minimizing stormwater runoff from your house.
  • Prairie plants are well adapted to Iowa weather meaning they can tolerate heavy rains and hot, dry summers too!
