Missouri Botanical Garden’s Plants of Merit Program in Rau Garden

Selecting good plants for the landscape can be a challenge when faced with all the possibilities. With the Plants of Merit Program, you can visit Rau Garden in Blanchette Park and view plants whose performance have been evaluated by horticulturalists to be dependable in the Midwest. Shorten your selection process for your own backyard and take a peek at what has been selected as reliable plants for our area.

We are proud to be accepted as the newest and first public park participating in the Plants of Merit Program through the Missouri Botanical Garden. Our appreciation also goes out to the Master Gardener’s who have volunteered to help us participate the program.
