Fall is ideal for adding native plants to your landscape. Create beauty, attract pollinators, support biodiversity.
On Saturday, Aug. 26, from 9-11 a.m., find approximately 1,500 plants at our booth at the Pawtuxet Village Farmers Market, 60 Rhodes Place, Cranston. Our selection includes many varieties of goldenrod and aster, but also many of your favorites like milkweed (butterfly weed, swamp and purple), trumpet honeysuckle, Culver’s root and blue vervain. In addition to flowering perennials, we will have grasses, carex, shrubs and trees.
We specialize in species native to Ecoregion 59, which includes almost all of Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts, and sections of New York, New Hampshire and Maine. As much as possible we source our plants from local seeds. Our plants are genetically suited to thrive in our local growing conditions and to support the complex webs of interactions that sustain our local flora and fauna.
