2nd Annual Bluestems & Bluejeans Native Plant Sale and Family Event

Adding to your garden this fall? Consider adding native plants to your garden. They are well suited for the area, are an important food source for birds and pollinating insects, and can add color and beauty to your garden. The perfect place to find these special plants is the State Botanical Garden of Georgia (2450 S. Milledge Avenue, Athens) on Saturday, October 5. The Bluestems & Bluejeans Native Plant Sale will be held from 9 am to 2 pm. But this free event is much more than a plant sale. There will be an opportunity to tour the Garden’s new Piedmont prairie area and tour the Mimsie Lanier Center for Native Plant Studies, plus there will be special activities for children from 10 am to 1 pm. For more information call 706-542-9353. To help you with your shopping list, the Garden has posted the list of over 200 species that will be available at this sale at More information on this event can also be found at this website.
