[DNR] Friends of Mounds State Park hosts native plant sale, May 17
Start Date: 5/17/2014Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 5/17/2014End Time: 2:00 PM
Entry Description
The Friends of Mounds State Park group will sell native plants and wildflowers at the park on May 17.

The annual native plant sale runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the nature center lawn. Customers are encouraged to come early because popular varieties sell quickly.

Native plants and wildflowers are hardy and can grow in less-than-perfect soils. Some need less water than plants from big-box stores and can be ideal for Indiana summers.

Plants range in price from $1-$8. More than 60 varieties will be available, including prairie and woodland plants, and plants that attract and host monarch butterflies, such as orange butterfly weed and rose swamp milkweed.

Some plants are harvested from the butterfly garden at Mounds State Park. Others are grown by Friends of Mounds State Park members or purchased as starters from a local nursery. New this year, the Friends will also sell a limited supply of Leopold Bench kits. The benches are named for conservationist Aldo Leopold. Leopold Benches are often seen in state parks and make a nice addition to home gardens and backyards.

The park naturalist will have critters on hand to keep children entertained while adults shop.

Standard park entrance fees of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle apply.

Mounds State Park (stateparks.IN.gov/2977.htm) is at 4306 Mounds Road, Anderson, 46017.
