OVLC Spring 2015 Native Plant Sale

Amazing I made it to April without a single plugola for the big sale.  We are one week away and I just wanted to give you a preview so you could make you shopping lists and come prepared.

Some regular favorites like fuchsia

and hummingbird sage are in scant supply, so come early before I get cleaned out.

So… about the milkweed.  This is usually a great time to plant them and attract all those monarchs.  Mine started emerging from winter dormancy a bit late this season.  Unfortunately the monarch caterpillars arrived early and decimated the unprepared milkweeds.

They are healthy, but ugly.  If you purchase one and it doesn’t survive I’ll give you a new one OK?

Let’s see… what else have we got… Plenty of bush mallow
