Iowa Native Perennials

Below are perennials that are native to the state of Iowa. Included on this list are some cultivars (cultivated varieties) and naturally-occurring hybrids that vary only slightly from the parent species.

Some native gardeners choose to incorporate cultivars into their plantings and some do not. You can identify these plants by the addition of an extra name at the end (such as 'May Breeze').

For a more detailed look at Iowa native plants by region, please cross-reference the USDA's PLANTS database and the University of Iowa's native plant resources.
