I had the opportunity to visit Oak Prairie and was quite impressed. The girl (I am guessing the owner's daughter) who gave us the tour was definitely more knowledgable about the plants than I was and was able to answer all my questions. We toured many of the greenhouses and the plants were all beautiful.
They had mainly aquatic/marginal plants and prairie plants/grasses but are in the process of expanding their woodland selection.
The plants were very nice and reasonably priced. They have a few display gardens but it is more of a working nursery, although they do have a nice store as well.
Order or visit early as they sell out of many varieties.
Definitely recommend this nursery and will be going back again next year.

The plants I purchased all transplanted extremely well, look great, have grown and several are blooming. What more can I say!!
