Missouri Plants is a website on the vascular plants of Missouri. The site is based primarily on Steyermark's Flora of Missouri by George Yatskievych, which was an update to Flora of Missouri by Julian Steyermark. In addition, the site utilizes other sources including the online sources Tropicos and BONAP, and various other print sources.

The site has pages on each plant species, with photos showing key aspects of each plant, with an eye towards identification. There is a brief summary of each plant's habitat, and discussion of each plant's occurrence in the state, but the site provides the most depth about identification. It is quite comprehensive and is the best resource we have been able to find that is specific to wild plants in the state of Missouri.

Unfortunately, the website is not mobile-optimized and sometimes glitches on mobile devices or narrow browser windows.
