This is the last week to pick up native plants at the native plant sale at the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC).
There are still many varieties available, such as black cohosh, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, white trillium, Christmas fern, New York fern, broad beech fern, dogwood, foam flower, sharp-lobed hepatica, Solomon’s seal, Canada violet, spicebush, white bee balm and bloodroot.
All plants are native to the area and have been rescued from a N.C. D.O.T. right-of-way scheduled for clearing later this summer. Tryon Garden Club and PAC have worked together to rescue these plants.
The plants are available at the PAC office, located at 850 N. Trade St. (Hwy. 176 near Nancy Roth Antiques and the Frog and Swan Antiques), Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
For more information, PAC can be reached at 828-859-5060.
