We both have gardening backgrounds founded in formal-style horticulture. Jenny grew up in the St. Louis area and was lead horticulturist at Meadowbrook Country Club in Ballwin, MO for eight years. David grew up south of Kansas City and started gardening professionally at the Missouri Botanical Garden specializing in annual plant display. We met while working at Missouri Botanical Garden's "Whitmire Wildflower Garden", a native plant showcase that utilizes indigenous plants to demonstrate many different styles of gardening. After moving to southern Missouri in 2015 we formed Ozark Soul Native Plants.
Because of our time spent in the "traditional" horticulture industry, we realize the sterility and unsustainability of today's gardens and landscapes. We want to be a part of a change!
Ozark Soul Native Plants specializes in regional native plant production and sales. We provide native plant solutions to your gardening needs. Using native plants will help eliminate chemical input into your gardens and will emphasize the ecology of the seen and unseen world in which we live. By combining our traditional horticulture education with our regional, native plant palette, we hope to provide you with the "right" plants for your location. We know from experience the joys associated with a native plant garden and hope you will consider Ozark Soul your home for native plants.
