Upstate Native Plant Sale

Posted on |

The spring Upstate Native Plant Sale is Saturday, April 18, at Conestee Park in the parking lot nearest to Mauldin Road.  The sale opens to paid up  NPS members at 8:30 am and is open to the public from 9am to 1pm.  The address is 840 Mauldin Road, just a three-minute drive south of 1-85.  Cash, credit and checks accepted.

We will have a wide selection of native shrubs, perennial wildflowers, vines, ferns, grasses and some trees.  We plan to bring in the largest order of deciduous native azaleas that we have ever had.  There will be pollinator plants, plants for butterflies, and plants for birds.  There will be native plants that flower throughout the growing season.   The majority of our perennials are grown locally at the NPS greenhouse.  There will be experiencedRhododendron periclymenoides advisors on hand to help you select plants for your landscape.

WHY PLANT NATIVES??

If each of us converted even a portion of our property back to native plants, our combined efforts would improve water quality as well as increase habitat for wildlife.  Native plants are increasingly desirable. the “in thing” in home landscapes.  Native plants are adapted to our soils and climate. Once established in an appropriate site, native plants generally require less water and tending than plants from other parts of the world.  Inoculate native plants with mycorrhizae when they are planted and then skip the fertilizer.

A list of the plants available will be posted closer to the sale.   Questions, call 864 855-6396 and leave a message if no one answers.
