The Northern Neck Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society (NNNPS) will host its annual sale of native plants from 9 a.m. to noon September 9 at Wicomico Parish Church, 5191 Jessie duPont Memorial Highway, Wicomico Church.
“Native plants are much better adapted to local conditions than many of the plants introduced here from other parts of the world,” said plant sale chairman Nick Ferriter. “They generally require less watering, fertilizing and pest control, as well as offer numerous beneficial relationships to native pollinators and other wildlife. Plus they can be quite beautiful.”
The sale will feature at least 60 varieties of flowers, ferns, grasses, trees, vines and shrubs that are native to the Virginia Coastal Plain.
