We are so thrilled to bring you the second annual Native and Pollinator Plant Sale at Plant Life Designs! We have curated a beautiful selection of native and pollinator plants that would love to be a part of your home landscape. The sale is designed to not only bring in a large variety of native plants, but also to be very educational.

We have arranged the selection by location of where to plant them and what pollinators/bees/birds they will attract. For example, we will have a section on host plants to attract specific types of butterflies to your yard, and a section of plants perfect for those hard to grow areas under a shady tree.

We are here to help you bring more natives into your landscape and celebrate National Pollinator Week at Plant Life Designs!
