Wildflower Native Plant Center

Wildflower Native Plant Center at Winchester Community College Help save native plants and beautify your garden too! On Saturday, April 29th, the Wildflower Native Plant Center at Winchester Community College in Valhalla N.Y. will host its annual plant sale. This event is a great way to buy beautiful additions to your garden, whether it be a woodland environment or in a sunnier locale. The sale also supports the legal propagation of native wildflowers and other plants threatened by habitat loss, over development and other factors.

Reading the list of plants sounds like a recitation of poetry fragments. Fireweed, Dungeness Rose, Quaker Ladies, Willow-leaved Mountain Mint, Lady Slipper Orchid, Yellow Trillium and other rare plants range in price from $6.50 to $40.00. These are plants that evolved right in our area and are therefore tough and resilient and will naturalize easily. They also lend a magical, delicate quality to plantings.

The sale is a so popular that you must arrive the minute it starts to find a good selection. Many people pre-order, but that deadline of March 1 has already passed.
