Native Plant Sale

Yellow False Indigo, Shooting Star, Tennessee Coneflower, Dwarf Crested Iris, Copper Iris, Blue Vervain and Culver's Root

I went to the Spring Native Plant Sale at the Virginia Living Museum this morning.  It coincided with their Earth Day Activities so it was pretty busy.  I’ve never seen so many people shopping for plants in all the years I’ve been attending.  There was a line to checkout and everyone had their hands full of goodies.  Initially I just intended to just browse and see what they had but of course I couldn’t leave empty handed.  :)  My favorite  has to be the Copper Iris or Iris fulva.  It needs a wet site, but I’m willing to make a small water garden to have this beauty in my garden.  Here’s a picture of it blooming below that I found at the US Forest Service:

  2. You got some goodies there! I am enjoying my second year with culver’s root. I have two of them, and they are nice looking plants, even when they are not in bloom. I love those irises, too! I’ve never grown them before.

      Thanks Sue. I’m excited about the Culver’s Root too, since I’ve seen it on several blogs & websites.
