They burn their yard each year and buy from the Wheaton native plant sale.  The results are superb!

Clayton Hinkle, a professional photographer. will be there to frame you with your favorite summer flower!  His pictures will be free for members to download.

After the tour we are invited to stay and enjoy the property further, so bring your own lunch.  This is a great way to learn about the plants- through informal discussion with other Wild Ones members.  Come and get your many questions answered! Learn new plants and simply enjoy nature in its wild, natural backdrop.  Butterflies are very likely to join us in enjoying the plants.
