Travel through gently rolling hills, open farmland or curving highway along the Mississippi River. Just when you need to stretch, you'll arrive in Missouri's picturesque rivertown, Louisiana, and the home of Stark Bro's Garden Center.
Walk through our greenhouse and outdoor plant displays with row upon row of fruit trees, landscaping shrubs, berries, colorful perennials, natives and flowering baskets.
Our Garden Center boasts both natural and terraced display areas, water gardening arrangements and a variety of gardening supplies. We have a wide selection of bare root trees. Let our experts help you choose the best for you.
While helpful staff ready your order, stroll across the street to visit the cabin built around 1830 by the founder, James Stark. Top off the trip with other local highlights such as The Murals and the Henry Lay Sculpture Park.
From Hwy 79: Traveling on Hwy 79 toward Louisiana, take Georgia Street heading west about 3 miles. Stark Bro's Garden Center will be on the right.
From Hwy 61: Take the US-54 ramp and head east on US-54 toward Louisiana. After approximately 11 miles, turn right on Hwy NN. The Garden Center will be less than 1/4 mile ahead.
