AFFEW Online Native Plant Sale 2024

All orders are accepted online for Garden & Single Species flats plus individual Quart & Gallon plants.

Help protect our species by gardening with native plants! These important plants provide nectar, pollen, and seeds for many insects, birds and animals. They are also hosts for many insects all year long. Native plants also require minimal maintenance and their deep root system absorb more water than a traditional lawn. With the continuous decline of the Monarch butterfly population, you can make a difference by creating a habitat for these beautiful and important butterflies! Last year, our sale introduced over 1880 new native plants to our community! New in 2024, we have highlighted plants that are native to our section of the state on the order forms.
