Cactus in Missouri


Head out to Sand Prairie Conservation Area and there’s sand there, and cactus too.

The sand creates an environment where rainwater drains quickly, leaving everything high and dry. It’s a quality habitat for prickly-pear cactus.

I’ve seen cactus at isolated locations in Missouri and Illinois, but Sand Prairie is covered by an impressive number of colonies in a variety of shapes and sizes. Look for them in the grassy area north of the parking lot, but watch your step!

Indeed.
