Native Plant Sale Is April 27

Native Plant Sale Is April 27

A community plant sale is a great place to find rare and unique native plants. And since all the plants are natives, they won't need additional irrigation once established.

Are you looking for something unique to set your garden apart from your neighbors without hogging too much water? Look no further than the Native Plant Society of Texas’ annual Spring Plant Sale, Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The event, held at Phil Hardberger Park, 13203 Blanco Rd., is a great opportunity to find rare and unique native plants, as well as landscape standards. The diverse offering includes milkweeds, sages, grasses, shrubs, trees and much more. Hint: Arrive early for the best selection.

Of course, since these are native plants, they will all be drought tolerant and won’t need additional irrigation once they’re established in their preferred conditions.

Proceeds from the event fund a grant program that promotes the use of native plants in landscaping by creating public gardens. Past recipients include teaching gardens at area schools, community gardens and even the entrance garden to the Medina River Natural Area.
