Virginia Living Museum Fall Native Plant Sale
Fall Native Plant Sale
Member Preview: September 26, 4-6pm
Public Sale: September 28 & 29 and October 5 & 6, 9am-4p
Fall, although often overlooked, is a wonderful time for gardening. Cooler temperatures and increased rainfall make it easier to introduce new shrubs, berries, and flowers for the next gardening season.
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.
Sale held rain or shine.
