Many visitors to Herbaria fall in love with Soapy. With her tail-wagging welcomes, she’s our Customer Service Specialist. Below are some of the places she likes to visit around St. Louis. Let Soapy serve as your concierge.

Locations are arranged from the river westward, then east over the Mississippi into Illinois, then even further afield back in Missouri.
