The Blue Ridge Wildflower Society’s Annual Native Plant Sale will bloom this year on Saturday, May 15, at the Roanoke Council of Garden Clubs, 3640 Colonial Avenue on the grass behind back parking lot.

The sale will be open to the public from 9 a.m. until noon.

Because of the pandemic, we ordered larger plants that won’t need repotting, so we will not have a potting party this year. Again, because of the pandemic restrictions, we chose to have it at the Garden Club instead of the usual location above the arboretum at Virginia Western Community College.

Below is a listing of some of the plants that we have ordered. There is a heavy emphasis on sun-loving, pollinator plants because our little friends need all the help we can give them.

We also have some shade plants but we need more. Any and all shade loving spring ephemerals and woodland ferns that you can donate would be greatly appreciated. As the time gets closer, we will send out an email asking for volunteers and give more specifics about the times.

If you have any questions or know of plants that you can donate, please don’t hesitate to contact Michael Belcher at 989-6384 or at michael.belcher@roanoke.com.
