Online ordering for The Nature Foundation of Will County Bringing Nature Home Native Plant Sale
This year’s spring sale features over 100 species of flowering plants including a selection of spring ephemerals as well as sedges, grasses and, new for this year, ferns! We hope we can offer everything on this list when we launch the online sale April 1, but we know nature is unpredictable. The weather conditions in the coming weeks and months will determine germination and growth for many of the more delicate native plants. We will update this list when we have more information and any changes from our growers. We will also be adding a selection of native trees and shrubs to the list in the coming weeks, plus information about our native plant collections available for sale and our Spring Raffle! Orders placed online must be picked up on Saturday, May 20 or Sunday, May 21 at the Isle a la Cache Preserve, 501 E. Romeo Road (135th Street) in Romeoville. There will also be an in-person “pop-up” sale on the pickup days.
