Sale features new carnivorous plant section
The Virginia Living Museum is holding its annual Native Plant Sale for the next two weekends – September 16 and 17 and September 23 and 24 – from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Conservation Garden. The sale is held rain or shine and admission is free.
The Virginia Living Museum’s horticulture staff conducts the fundraiser to introduce the gardening public to the variety of native plants that will do well in Hampton Roads’ landscape and to educate gardeners about those which are better left in the wild. All of the plants, with few exceptions, are propagated from the museum’s nursery. Those interested in purchasing plants can ask the museum’s horticulture staff questions as they will discuss the wildlife benefits of native plants and help with any particular gardening situations.
Garden enthusiasts can choose from an array of beautiful and unusual native plants for a variety of garden sites and styles, from wet ponds to dry rock gardens. Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife to a backyard. The sale will feature a new carnivorous plant section with 12 east coast native pitcher plant species and Venus fly traps.
