Roanoke Council of Garden Clubs


The Blue Ridge Wildflower Society’s Annual Native Plant Sale will bloom this year on Saturday, May 27, 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.

These sales couldn’t take place without all of you who volunteer your time and labor, donate plants and, of course, buy wildflowers. Our real money makers are the plants that our members donate. Any and all native plants are welcome and will be put to good use at the sale, in our club’s garden, at the Virginia Western Community College Arboretum, and the Science Museum of Western Virginia in downtown Roanoke

As the date gets closer, we will send out emails asking for volunteers and lists of plants that people plan to donate. Michael Belcher will organize the sale. He can be reached at or by calling (540) 989-6384.
