The Sierra Foothills Chapter of the California Native Plant Society is holding a native plant sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday April 16 at CCWD’s headquarters at 120 Toma Court, San Andreas, 95249.
Hundreds of plants, including trees, shrubs, bulbs, perennials, grasses and water-wise plants, will all be available for purchase. A wide variety of educational booths will also be set up. CCWD’s native and drought-tolerant landscaping is an excellent example of what these plants will look like once they are established.
Judy Dean, who is a CNPS member and former master gardener, raves about the benefits of choosing to grow native plants.
“Native plants take so little care,” she enthused. “People don’t have time to spend hours and hours in their garden. Once native plants get their roots down, they can grow without water or with deep water once a month. They are very drought tolerant and take almost no pruning. You can mulch them with rocks or pine needles or whatever you want and hardly any weeds will come up. They are just so smart!”
