Spring Native Plant Sale
April 22 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until April 30, 2017
Choose from an incredible array of beautiful and unusual native plants for a variety of garden sites and styles, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to your yard. The Virginia Living Museum’s horticulture staff holds this annual sale as a fund-raiser, but the real goal is to introduce the gardening public to the incredible variety of native plants that will do well in the landscape, and to educate gardeners about those which are better left in the wild. Native plants are good choices for area gardeners because such plants tolerate the area’s weather and serve as food and shelter for area wildlife, while also providing a good show in the garden.
The sale will be held in the Conservation Garden and as always, the Museum’s knowledgeable horticulture staff will be on hand to answer your questions, discuss the wildlife benefits of native plants and help with any particular gardening situations. All plants are nursery propagated and many are not yet available in the commercial nursery trade.
Sale held rain or shine, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., April 22, 23, 29 and 30. Admission to the sale is free. 524 J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News.
