Daniel Boone Native Gardens

Boone, NC – The Daniel Boone Native Gardens kick off the 2018 season with the 11th Annual EARLY BIRD WILDFLOWER WALK & PLANT SALE from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 21.  Native plants will be available from local vendors.
Event is free.  Bring the family, hike Strawberry Hill Arboretum or visit historic Squire Boone Cabin.
“Don’t miss the display of unique spring flowers rarely seen,” said Andrew Jenkins, board member of the Gardens and curator of the ASU Herbarium.
Dr. Annkatrin Rose, Blue Ridge Chapter Chair for the NC Native Plant Society and board member of the Gardens mentioned that her favorite garden spring wildflower is Moss Phlox (Phlox subulata). “They will likely be in bloom right next to the Gatehouse during our sale and they are such a wonderful easy-care groundcover providing much needed food for pollinators in early spring.“
“The gardens contain more than 200 species of native plants, many of which offer the best display of color during spring,” added Robert Oelberg, landscape architect and board member.
Gail Hill, president of the Garden Clubs of North Carolina, recommended that all garden clubs visit this event. The Daniel Boone Native Gardens are a project of the Garden Club of North Carolina which has more than 5,000 members.
