Wild Ones: Native Woodland Plant Sale
Klehm would like to share this great community event :
Now through April 19, 2012
The annual Native Woodland Plant Sale, sponsored by the Rock River Valley Chapter of Wild Ones, is beginning just in time for spring. Not only are these native plants a charming addition to the shaded yard, but when properly sited and established, they are tough and carefree, needing neither fertilizer nor constant watering. In addition, native plants provide the food and shelter that butterflies, other insects and humming birds require.
Twenty-five flowering plants are offered this year including hepatica, bloodroot, blue cohosh, Jack- in- the-pulpit, trillium (both the white large flowered type as well as the red), Virginia bluebells, Dutchman’s breeches and many more. There is also a great selection of ferns and sedges. An e-form of the sale brochure is available click here for your copy. For a paper copy or to have a copy e-mailed, please contact Barbara Flores, sale coordinator, at [email protected] or call 815-289-8602. All inquiries are most welcome.
Funds raised by this and other native plant sales (prairie and trees and shrubs) support the meeting programs as well as the environmental projects of Wild Ones. Meetings are normally held at the Burpee Museum, 737 N. Main Street, in Rockford. Visitors are always welcome. The next meeting is March 15 at 7:00 pm when Lee Johnson, former director of the Burpee Museum, will give a presentation on Native Forbs and Grasses to Attract Birds. Please call to confirm meeting place of other meetings.
