Friends of Reinstein Woods is accepting orders for their native perennial plant sale through Saturday, Feb. 11. The sale will raise funds to support environmental education programs offered by Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve.
“Native plants are an excellent choice for homeowners and gardeners,” said Brittany Rowan, Friends of Reinstein educator. “They are lower maintenance and use less resources like water and fertilizer than exotic varieties. Native plants can be used in all kinds of landscape features, from hummingbird and butterfly gardens to attractive borders and hedgerows.”
Sixteen flower varieties and two shrub species are available for pre-order, including cardinal flower, butterfly milkweed and serviceberry. Many of these plants are not widely available at standard garden centers, Rowan said.
Plant orders may be picked up on Saturday, May 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve, 93 Honorine Dr., Cheektowaga.
