Last-minute Mother's Day idea: native plants

May 06, 2011|By Liz F. Kay

If you are a procrastinator like I am, and are lucky enough to live in close proximity to the maternal units you plan to celebrate on Sunday, then consider gifts of native plants instead of cut flowers or arrangements.

Cylburn Arboretum will hold its annual Market Sale tonight and Saturday, with vendors selling wildflowers and native plants that should be adapted to the native climate --- meaning they won't require green thumbs or excess care to make them thrive.

You might find it more convenient to hit Blue Water Baltimore's nursery sale on Sunday. Residents of Baltimore, Baltimore County or Harford County: don't forget to pick up a $10 tree coupon from the Growing Home campaign if an arborial delight is on your shopping list.
