Klamath Falls, Ore. – A native plant sale will be held at the Klamath County Museum from 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday, May 26.

The sale is a continuation from an event held last weekend. A variety of nursery-grown plants will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

“We have several types of native plants available, including some beautiful wildflowers,” said Todd Kepple, museum manager. “These plants were grown in commercial nurseries in the Bend area, and should do well in our area.”

The native plant sale is cosponsored by the museum, the Klamath Basin Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon, and the Klamath Soil and Water Conservation District.

Species available include sulfur buckwheat, spreading phlox, and sticky purple geranium.

There will also be a variety of native shrubs and grasses available. Prices will range from $4 for a 4-inch pot to $8 for a 1-gallon pot.

Other nature programs slated by the museum include a native garden walk on June 2, and a Pollinator Day on June 22.
