FUNDRAISER FOR THE CHICAGO AUDUBON

 A Great Native Plant Sale Opportunity! 

Native Plants can be pre-ordered from now until April 29

Experience this unique opportunity to purchase common and lesser known native plants for your home garden. Many of these plants from local ecotypes are difficult to find in the retail sector. This plant sale will introduce you to many indigenous species that have evolved and adapted to our local conditions over many centuries, growing naturally without fertilizers, supplemental irrigation and herbicides. Whether your landscape is sunny, shady or in between, there will be plants to choose from. Varieties will include perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees. Native plants provide food for pollinators, birds and other wildlife, shelter for wildlife, are ornamental and can thrive in  many different soil conditions. Many of the plants are resistant to deer and other wildlife.

 Please go to this website to review the many native plants that are currently available:
