The Highland Center’s 11th Annual Grow Native Plant Sale is an annual event that features a large variety of native plants to increase the beauty of our landscapes. Admission is free and Members will receive a 10% discount on all purchases when they present their membership card. The Grow Native Plant Sale is wonderful way to support education in the community while beautifying an outdoor space. A wide variety of locally and regionally native plants are available along with Master Gardeners and Highlands Center Naturalists available to answer questions on types of plants, soils, plants that do or do not attract wildlife, and much more. The proceeds from the weekend sales support continuous programming for youth and adults throughout each year. This year we will have an extensive supply of local milkweeds such as Antelope Horn and Butterfly Milkweed.
