Important Information from Cathy - Plant Sale Chairperson
Highly desirable plants: hellebores, Hosta’s, hydrangeas, herbs and native plants.
There are reasons for not bringing plants to the plant sale.
Some plants are on the state invasive plant list, some plants are highly toxic to wild life
or people, and some plants are just too darn prolific. On the other hand, there are plants
that garner limited interest from our customers for varying reasons; if the plant is little
known and it’s a special plant, we love it! It’s a matter of education. Others are very
common and we need in limited numbers, unknown color day lilies and irises being a
good example. So, if you have any doubts about species or numbers please do check
with me and I will tell you what I can. I think if you ask any five-plant people in the club
you will find that we all have prejudices for and against different plants.
Plants not to bring: Japanese privet, walking iris, Nandini, leatherleaf mahonia and
sweet autumn clematis. Cathay Nelmes (404) 455-9537
