Globe thistle (Echinops bannaticus) is just one of many underused plants you'll discover at the Missouri Botanical Garden website.
So many questions, so little time. Wouldn't it be great to find a trustworthy resource for looking up everything from design ideas and plant suggestions to growing tips and advice for dealing with pests and diseases? Absolutely!
That’s why we like the Missouri Botanical Garden website, particularly the section on identifying and dealing with pests and diseases.
Looking for answers to gardening questions? Check out the Frequently Asked Questions section of the website here. If you don’t find the information you need, you can call the Garden’s helpline and talk to a master gardener.
Want suggestions for tried and true plants? You'll find them here and searching is easy using common or botanical names. The photos are gorgeous, too.
It always helps to have the facts!
