US: State Botanical Garden to host native plant sale
The sale will be Oct. 1-4 and 8-11. Weekday hours are 4-6 p.m. and on Saturdays Oct. 4 and 11 the sale will be from 9 a.m. until noon.
The sale will feature nearly 200 species of Georgia native plants grown from Georgia seeds and raised at the garden's Mimsie Lanier Center for Native Plant Studies. Experts will be on site to provide information about the plants.
"Purchasing plants that were originally sourced from wild Georgia populations supports the natural rhythms and cycles of Georgia flowering plants and their pollinators," said Jennifer Ceska, conservation coordinator at the garden.
Several species of well-known wildflowers including the drought tolerant Bee Balm, Sunflower, Beardtongue, Georgia Aster and Milkweed will be available.
The sale will also feature native trees, shrubs and grasses, which provide nesting materials, habitat and food sources for adult and baby birds.
On Oct. 4, between 10 a.m. and noon, the garden will feature children's activities and offer instruction on school pollinator gardens.
Keep Athens Clarke County Beautiful will partner with the Mimsie Lanier Center for Native Plant Studies during the sale to raise awareness of Georgia native plant teaching gardens.
