Prairies, rolling hills, mountains and rivers…Missouri is a midwestern state that seems to offer a little of everything.  Steeped in history and tradition, it provides a fascinating view into our country’s past and sets the stage for opportunities in the future.

If you’re a Missouri gardener you’re well aware of the diverse character of this “Gateway to the West”.  From the fertile, northern plains to the Ozark Mountains in the south, Missouri offers a rich diversity of soils and conditions…and Nature Hills Nursery has 13 years of experience in matching Missouri gardeners with plants that will help them to make a house a home.

Choosing A Tree For Your Missouri Landscape

The Flowering Dogwood is the state tree of Missouri, but Missourians know that there are many trees that do well in the “Missouri Territory”.  One of the most popular choices of our Missouri guests is the Bing Cherry Tree.  One of the finest varieties of sweet cherry you’ll ever find, Bing’s dazzling spring display and delicious fruit make it an exceptional selection for any cherry aficionado. 

Likewise, the Mimosa tree is an outstanding choice for those-in-the-know.  Fast-growing and resplendent in color and tropical characteristics, this multi-talented tree is a sure bet for almost any Missouri home. 

Autumn Blaze Maple, Royal Empress…and so many other Missouri-friendly trees, await your selection at nature Hills Nursery!
