You can find a wide variety of native plants at three sales in the metro area this fall. Each sale is accepting pre-orders from several nurseries that specialize in growing local native flowers, grasses, bushes and trees.

As a COVID-19 safety precaution, all sales will be a pre-paid/pickup format. No extra plants will be available for purchase the day of the sale.
