Spring Native Plant Sale

Saturday April 18 - Sunday April 19

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 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 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 the Museum’s knowledgeable horticulture staff will be on hand to answer 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. Admission to the plant sale is free.Sale will be held rain or shine and will be repeated April 25 and 26.
