Spring – Native Plant, Tree, Shrub Sale

Native Plant, Tree & Shrub Sale

Wild Ones Fox Valley Area conducts an annual native plant sale to give area residents the opportunity to select high quality native forbs, grasses, ferns, vines, trees and shrubs for use in their plantings. The WOFVA Plant Sale will be happening in 2021, but at this time, we are focusing on pre-orders. We will decide in April about holding a public sale on Saturday, May 22. For more information, contact Plant Sale Chair

Which plants might work for your own growing conditions? We recommend Prairie Nursery for plant ideas. They also have plant listings for certain habitats, such as rain gardens. Any not-for-profit organization is eligible for a discount on plants purchased for use in developing outdoor learning centers and nature areas.

The annual WOFVA plant sale is an opportunity to purchase regionally sourced native forbs, grasses, shrubs and trees at reasonable prices. Proceeds from the sale go to further the environmental mission of the Wild Ones Fox Valley Area Chapter.

We will not offer Collections this year. Instead, we are introducing “Donna’s Recommendations”. These are groupings of plant species chosen to fit specific needs or gardens. Use the suggestions to help you decide which plants to order. You can mix and match the species to fit your garden.

The price will be $6.00 per pot. The categories include: Short Stature, Tall Butterfly, Sunny Rain Garden, Early Nectar, Shade, and Butterfly/Bird. See page 3 of the order form for more information.  Other resources to help you choose the best plants for your gardens are: “Native Trees Feed Caterpillars that Feed Birds”, “Wild for Monarchs and Pollinators”, and “Wisconsin’s Best Native Plants for Attracting Birds”

As we did in 2020, we will plan order pickup times to provide safe conditions for both our volunteers and people picking up their orders. That may mean staggered hours or additional dates for pickups to avoid crowding. Watch this website and your email for more information, as we get closer to the sale date
