SBP promotes native plant gardening with a one week “native plants giveaway”

SBP gave away numerous native plants during the  “Native Plant Giveaway” between June 20 and June 26, 2021. Many gardeners picked up Jack in the Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum), Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus), Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis), Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis), Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius), Silky dogwood (Cornus amomum), and Gooseberry (Ribes sp.). Non-native plants like Red currants (Ribes rubrum), Lavender, and Dragon Fruit Cacti (Selenicereus sp. & Hylocereus sp.) also proved popular. This giveaway will enable more gardens to be friendlier to animals, especially birds and insects, while improving the landscape and providing enjoyment and food (berries) for humans. SBP also thanks the gardeners who donated money to SBP to further its work on Biodiversity Preservation.

“All plants are our brothers and sisters and they talk to us and if we listen we can hear them.” Native American proverb
