Sunday, April 29, 2018 | 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Shop the Annual Native Plant Sale in the barn. Join the largest crowd of the year at Ivy Creek for the Annual Native Plant Sale sponsored by the Jefferson Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society. Chapter members will have potted over 1,500 native plants with an emphasis on spring favorites: Virginia bluebells, toadshade trillium, Dutchman's breeches, toothwort, butterfly weed, monardas, coreopsis, heuchera, creeping phlox, wild stonecrop sedum, Mayapple, wild ginger, wild geranium, and others. Summer and fall flowering pollinator attractors including milkweed, beebalm, coneflowers, liatris, asters, and goldenrods will also be featured. First time offerings include shrubby St. Johnswort and golden Alexanders. Uncommon native trees and shrubs will be offered too. There will also be a raff!e of artwork by Beth Crogan. Tickets $1, all proceeds to go to VNPS (you need to be present to win). Volunteers needed: setting up tables, sorting, and labeling for sale begins on Sat. afternoon 3:00 – 6:00 pm; final preparations start on Sunday morning beginning at 10:30.
A large portion of the profits are donated to Ivy Creek Foundation, while other educational and conservation activities are also supported. These very affordably priced plants have sold out quickly in the past.
