The 25th Annual Native Plant Sale consists of more than 80 plant species, including large selections of woodland flowering plants and ferns; dry, medium, and wet prairie flowering plants; as well as grasses, shrubs, and trees. All varieties come in pots and most species are native to Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties. Combining native plants into your landscape will increase its beauty and attract more native pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds to your property.
All Native Plant Sale profits will support the mission of the Friends of Indiana Dunes which is to enhance and foster understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the dunes through financial and volunteer support. Indiana Dunes National Park, Indiana Dunes State Park and Dunes Learning Center are the beneficiaries of our support.
