Fall is an ideal time to plant many perennials, vines, shrubs, and trees that are native to Virginia. Get some new and unique items for your garden during the Virginia Living Museum’s (VLM) Native Plant Sale. The sale is open to the public September 17 and 18 and September 24 and 25, from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. daily.
Guests can choose from an incredible array of beautiful and unusual native plants that suit a variety of garden sites and styles, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Native plants are good choices for area gardeners because they tolerate the area’s weather and serve as food and shelter for area wildlife, while also providing a good show in the garden. Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds, and other wildlife to yards. All plants are nursery propagated and many are not yet available in the commercial nursery trade.
The sale will be held in the VLM’s Conservation Garden. During the event, the VLM’s knowledgeable horticulture staff will be on hand to answer questions, discuss the wildlife benefits of native plants, and address any gardening situations.
The Virginia Living Museum is located at 524 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard in Newport News. For more information on the event, visit the Fall Native Plant Sale webpage.
