Forrest Keeling gives its RPM-produced plants a special mycorrhizal addition so they grow stronger, healthier and faster.
Whether you know specific plant species you want, or just know the characteristics you want, our Plant Search feature will help you. Use it to sort listed plants by type, physical characteristics, mature size, preferred site and seasonal color. Or sort by characteristics including drought- or salt-tolerance and food for wildlife.
Large-scale projects may want to check for a list of species available in bare root format or trees approved for MSD (St. Louis Metro Sewer District) streambank stabilization projects. When you have the list sorted, just save and print!
Then, to estimate the number of plants required for your project, use our plant calculators found in the 'Working with Us' section.
The MSD Stormwater Best Management Guide is a collaborative project between the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District, Missouri Department of Conservation, Missouri Botanical Garden, Shaw Nature Reserve and Grow Native! Requirements include use of local ecotype (Missouri or Southern Illinois); use of a minimum of five grass/sedge species and eight forb species for each BMP. These species must consist of between 5% - 15% of the total plant count for each BMP.
