Walla Walla group plans eco-friendlier plant sale

Advertisement

The Walla Walla Native Plant Society will sell plants Sept. 24 at Blue Mountain Humane Society, 7 E. George St., 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

Native and other drought-tolerant plants will be available. One example is native columbine, Aquilegia Formosa. The short-lived perennial is a good nectar source for hummingbirds, bees and butterflies, plant society members said.

Native plants, once established, require less water than conventional landscaping and also don't require pesticides and herbicides.

For more information call 525-1079.
