University Gardens offers dozens of varieties of perennials that grow in both sun and shade. Our perennials are Missouri natives, and some are rare and hard to find.

A Perennial is a plant that lives for more than 2 years and whose bloom is recurrent.

Perennials are popular as they don’t require annual planting, they require less fertilizer and water to grow, and many are native to Missouri.

Of course, perennials purchased from University Gardens support local growers, as our perennials are all locally sourced.
