Just in time for Mother’s Day, Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum will host its annual Plant Sale on Saturday, May 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The arboretum is located at 725 Pines Lake Drive West (entrances at Vale Road and Pines Lake Drive) in Wayne.
This year’s plant sale will feature a selection of high-quality annuals and perennials, container gardens, and beautiful hanging plants. There will also be native plants, Mother’s Day gifts for children to purchase, plants that attract butterflies, and unusual perennials. As always, there will be some special plants from the arboretum grown in the greenhouse from cuttings. In addition to the plants for sale, there will be a butterfly information station.
A special feature this year will be exhibit of photographs and watercolors by former Wayne resident Bob Shine. These will be on display in the Knippenberg Center for Education during the hours of the plant sale.
Volunteer tour guides will be on hand to lead tours of the arboretum from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Laurelwood will be ablaze with colors, textures and aromas as native dogwoods, oakleaf and climbing hydrangeas, hostas, daylilies, lilacs, irises and other plants flower in May.
All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum.
