A native plant sale will be held at the Klamath County Museum starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 18.
Klamath Falls, Ore. – A variety of nursery-grown plants will be available on a first-come, first-served basis during a native plant sale being held at the Klamath County Museum, Saturday May 18, starting at 9:00 AM
“We’ll have a nice variety of wildflowers, grasses and shrubs suitable for landscaping projects,” said Todd Kepple, museum manager. “We encourage our customers to come at 9 o’clock sharp. We’ve increased our order for plants this year, but the most popular species will probably sell out within a half-hour.”
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.
The sale will actually take place in the Fleetpride parking lot, across the street from the museum.
Species expected to be available include buckwheat, scarlet gilia, sand lily, phlox, aster, geranium, prairie smoke and pussytoes. A full list of plants that are expected to be available can be found on the museum’s Facebook page.
Prices will range from $5 for a 4-inch pot to $10 for a 1-gallon pot. A few discounted plants will be available.
“Everything on our sale list has been tried and tested in our native plant gardens at the museum,” Kepple said. “We encourage people to use native plants in landscaping for a number of reasons, including their tolerance of our dry climate and the occasional late frost.”
