View a list of prairie plants (pdf) that will be featured in the prairie at the Horticulture Center.


As one of the several gardens at the Horticulture Center, the prairie offers horticulture students the ability to study native plants, and provides them with a landscaping tool. The prairie also offers a return to green space in Bloomington-Normal, as students work to re-establish the native Illinois form of the prairie space. This garden is focused on the public's strong interest in native plants and energy-conserving landscapes. Colorful combinations of native forbs and grasses will make this a garden of lasting beauty.
