Wednesday, April 4, 2012

In just a few days, the 33rd Annual Spring Plant Sale will take place at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.  I will be posting some information about the plants that FTBG will be offering.

 Fairchild’s 33rd Annual Spring Plant Sale will take place April 14 & 15 at FTBG during the Food & Garden Festival.  We will have a huge variety available including 62 kinds of native plants, many which are wonderful butterfly or bird attracting species.  Our native Senna’s attract the beautiful sulphur butterflies.  Passiflora pallens and corky-stemmed passionflower, Passiflora suberosa, attract Zebra Longwings, Gulf Fritillary and Julia butterflies.  Our beautiful lignum vitae, Guaiacum sanctum, and fiddlewood, Citharexylum spinosum both produce fruit which attracts birds.
