The Sautee Nacoochee Center is offering a plant sale on Saturday, October 8 with plants native to northern Georgia. The community can purchase over 60 species of plants suitable for native pollinators.
The Sautee Nacoochee Community Association’s Environmental Heritage Program will host the Fall Native Plant Sale for Pollinators from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Perennial wildflowers, vines and shrubs will be available. Click here for a list of plants that will be available for sale or visit snca.org.
An example of an interesting native plant that will be sold is Georgia Aster. A plant that grows in dry, sunny places in drought-tolerant clay soil is a plant anyone can use! Georgia Aster has the largest flower of all native asters and is bright lavender to bright purple in color. It grows tall but can be cut back in mid-summer for more compact growth. It can fill in an open area just as it would in its native prairie habitat. This plant has become rare due to the destruction of its prairie habitat in Georgia.
Proceeds from the sale support the Center’s Native Peace Garden.
