TIME: 9am-4pm Sat, 1-4pm Sun
The Garden’s annual prairie wildflower sale will be held the weekend of May 11 and 12. The sale will be held from 9 a.m to 4 p.m on Saturday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Over two dozen species of wildflowers will be on sale including popular favorites like purple coneflower, royal catchfly and butterfly weed. Prairie enthusiasts might enjoy adding queen of the prairie, lead plant or prairie smoke to their garden or restoration. While providing beauty in your landscape, these native plants anchor the soil, are son-loving, easy to grow, and represent a bit of Illinois Natural Heritage.
There will be plenty of choices and most wildflowers will be priced around $5 for a second year plant with a great root system. For more information call the Nature Center at 529-1111.
