Shop a mini version of our popular Spring Plant Sale featuring plants suited for fall planting. We will have a limited selection of Ohio native perennial species available, many of which we do not typically have at our spring sale. We'll have several types of milkweed, ironweed, blue lobelia and more. The sale will take place in the pavilion. The sale is great chance to pick up some plants for fall color.
