A Huge Selection of Milkweed Still Available
Hundreds of milkweed across several different species (Green Milkweed, Antelope Horns Milkweed, Swamp Milkweed, Zizotes Milkweed, Showy Milkweed, Texas Milkweed and Butterflyweed) are still available.
By now, you may have heard how Monarch butterflies and other pollinators are in decline. Have you wanted to start gardening for them and don't know where to start? Or, perhaps your garden only needs some finishing touches. Be sure to stop by the 28th Annual Spring Plant Sale fundraiser this weekend at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary. Hundreds of milkweed across several different species (Green Milkweed, Antelope Horns Milkweed, Swamp Milkweed, Zizotes Milkweed, Showy Milkweed, Texas Milkweed and Butterflyweed) are still available. The Heard also has a wide selection of plants that are rich sources of nectar for adult pollinators and host plants for caterpillars.
If you have any questions, volunteers from Blackland Prairie Master Naturalists and Native Plant Society Collin County Chapter will be available to help you find the plant that is right for your landscape and needs.
All sales are tax-free and proceeds benefit the Heard, a private 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Please see our website for the plant list at www.heardmuseum.org/plantsale. Guests are welcome to bring carts or wagons to facilitate their purchases.
The plant sale will be open to the public on April 22nd from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and April 23rd from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
