Plants every gardener will love

Grass Roots Garden Center & Gifts

Plants at our Garden Center

Our garden center serves gardeners and indoor plant enthusiasts from Marshfield, Springfield, Lebanon, and all over Southwest Missouri. Any greenhouse or nursery can sell plants, but we take particular care in choosing our stock. We even continue plant care once plants arrive to ensure you never see a “picked-over” selection. Our helpful staff can help you with planting questions and are happy to load your car. Come visit to see why you’ll never go to a big box store for your plants again.

We carry indoor plants, garden starts, perennials, annuals, hanging baskets, shrubs, and trees so you don’t have to shop around.

Take a look below to see some of our plant selection. We bring in new types of plants for each planting season and our inventory is always changing. If you’re looking for a specific variety, please contact us and we’ll be glad to assist.

Garden Starts

Garden starts are a great option if you’re a beginner, you didn’t plant seeds early enough, or you simply want to know your garden is off to a running start.

Our selection of garden starts changes every year and throughout the seasons. Here’s some of what you’ll find:


Perennials are plants that bring beauty to your landscaping or garden year after year.

We carry lots of pollinator-friendly perennials so you can enjoy the pops of color while helping the bees and butterflies right outside your door. Who knew helping the environment could be so fun?

We offer rotating selections depending on the planting season. For example, native flowering plants are popular in the spring while mums sell out every fall. You’ll find many garden favorites or something new you’ve never grown before.


Annuals die back every fall or winter. Though they only last a season, lots of gardeners like to switch portions of their landscaping up and annuals are a perfect pick.

Hanging baskets

Hanging baskets are a great solution for adding color and life when you don’t have a lot of space for pots. They work great on patios, overhangs, and anywhere where there’s a place to hang them!

At Grass Roots, we have a wide selection of pre-planted baskets. You can also pick out a variety of individual plants and have us plant them in the basket you choose.


Grasses help prevent erosion, soak up standing water, and look beautiful year after year. Landscape grasses work well for creating privacy, serving as as a focal point or even as ground cover around other central plants. If you’re not sure which grasses fit your design, feel free to ask our specialists.


Shrubs offer visual appeal with both their foliage and blooms. Hydrangeas are a favorite and come in many different colors. You can also find azaleas, lilacs bushes, burning bush, forsythia, rose bushes, viburnum, and other garden shrubs in our garden center.


We carry a variety of trees for sale throughout each planting season. Evergreen trees are great for privacy and year-long beauty. Fruit trees can feed your family and support local wildlife. Ornamental trees like the Japanese maple add visual interest to your overall landscape. Give us a call to see what we have in stock. If you’re looking for a specific species, we’re usually able to order it in for you as well.

Aquatic Plants

We have a limited stock of aquatic plants available seasonally.

Watering Tips

  • Our watering advice is based on plants living in a 72 degree house. Porch life or humidity could have an impact on its watering needs.
  • Always use tepid water for watering your houseplants.
  • Broadleaf plants need less water in fall and winter, but you should never allow the soil to completely dry out.
