Illinois Native Plant Society Central Chapter Native Plant Sale

May 11 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Illinois Native Plant Society

Be sure to put the annual Central Chapter Native Plant Sale on your calendar– Saturday, May 11th. We will be back at the Reisch Pavilion (AKA Food-o-Rama) at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. You can expect the area’s largest native plant sale in both diversity and quantity! A great selection of native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants will be offered to help you create habitat at home. Multiple milkweed species will be offered, along with so many other great species that benefit native wildlife. The plants are grown from local seed sources whenever available by chapter members and local nurseries.

The species list will be posted online at https://illinoisplants.org/central-chapter-plant-sale/. If this is your first time attending, plan on arriving early. Quantities are limited and many popular species sell out quickly– though we are looking at increasing quantities considerably this year!

Proceeds from the sale support the chapter’s grant program. Grants fund a variety of native plant projects completed by local organizations, schools, graduate students, and more. To find out how your project can benefit from an INPS grant, see https://illinoisplants.org/central-chapter-grant-info/.

If you would like to volunteer at the sale or help with any of the preparations, propagation, or advertising or simply have questions about the sale, please contact sale chair Mary Ring at 217-243-6055 or westring@frontier.com.

Note- Route 66 Monarch Flyway will be on hand to discuss the pollinator plants at the Illinois Route 66 Experience at Gate 2 of the fairgrounds, and how they look in maturity.
