Perennial of the year for 2017
Asclepias tuberosa - butterfly weed
With all the ”buzz” about bees and butterflies, why not celebrate an excellent plant known for its ability to support insects and birds and serve as the primary caterpillar food for a beloved North American native butterfly? The Perennial Plant Association is proud to announce Asclepias tuberosa as its 2017 Perennial Plant of the Year™.
We will have 2017 memberships for sale at the February meeting for $15.00. We will have our yearly calendar printed for each member. We are very excited to offer our members a great selection of key speakers this year. Some that have never appeared in our area so make sure you renew your membership and come to the February meeting to find out more of the details.
SEE YOU FEBRUARY 16TH AT 7 PM.
