Plant Sale Fundraiser to Offer Huge Native Milkweed Selection

8 years ago

I'm not sure if this is allowed here, but in case interesting:

This year, the Spring Plant Sale at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in McKinney, Texas will feature a huge selection of native milkweed plants. Species available for purchase will include Asclepias brachystephana, Asclepias incarnata, Asclepias texana, Asclepias oenotheroides, Asclepias asperula capricornu, Asclepias arenaria and Asclepias asperula asperula. By purchasing and planting milkweed to help feed Monarch butterfly caterpillars, North Texans will be able to help the recovery of this species and support the Heard, a private 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization. A representative from Monarch Watch will be available during much of the sale to answer your questions about Monarchs. This sale will also feature native flowering plants that provide nectar for the adult butterflies.

For more than 20 years, veteran and novice gardeners alike have anticipated this rare opportunity to purchase plants from a huge selection of native plants, hard-to-find herbs and well-adapted plants at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary’s annual Spring Plant Sale. This year, the Heard will provide some of the best plants for North Central Texas gardens and an opportunity to obtain many rare plants. Please see our website for the complete plant list at

The plant sale will be open to the public on April 16th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and April 17th from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. A Heard Museum Member Pre-Sale will be offered on April 15th from 4-7 p.m. The Member Pre-Sale is open to Heard Museum members only; however, memberships will be available for purchase at the event or online beforehand. Due to overwhelming support last year, the plant sale sold out early making the Member Pre-Sale all the more advantageous for Heard Museum members.
