Native Plant Sale

Native plants are easy to grow and maintain because they are well adapted to our soils and climate. Plants native to Michigan will thrive in your yard without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Thanks to their extensive root systems, native plants, once established, will require less than non-native plants.

By landscaping with native plants, you will attract butterflies, birds, pollinators and other beneficial organisms to your yard and provide them with the food and habitat they need to thrive.

Plant families that may be available for fall consist of: Aster, Bellflower, Buttercup, Carrot, Evening Primrose, Figwort, Grass, Iris, Legume, Lily, Mildwood, Mint, Rose and/or Verbena.

These plants will ONLY be available at the Conservation Expo on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., or as supply lasts.
