Aligning your garden and landscaping to be beneficial to butterflies, pollinators and songbirds is a great way to help support a healthy environment. Few things are as interesting and wonderful as butterflies and hummingbirds enjoying a vibrant and beautiful garden.

On May 15, 16 and 17, the Institute will hold its fifth annual native perennial plant sale. We have selected a beautiful array of plants that will bloom throughout the season and provide all the various food resources that butterflies, songbirds, hummingbirds, and other pollinators need to thrive.

This year, COVID-19 presents us all with unique challenges, but we are working to address them so that we can get your plants to you safely and responsibly. You can place your plant order entirely online, which is a great way to ensure that you have everything you need to get your gardens in tip-top shape for the season and provide some joy to the home-bound. We are also developing special plans for safe curbside pickup, as well as other strategies to allow for responsible sale management and safe delivery of your plants.
