Wildflower and Native Plant Group

New Wildflower and Native Plant Group Springs Up

Do you have a long-abiding love of wildflowers or are you interested in learning more about using native plants in your landscape but don’t know the difference between a native and a weed?  Regardless of your knowledge base, you are welcomed to join the newly-formed Wildflower and Native Plant Group.

The first meeting will be held at the Greenlife Grocery (301 Manufacturer’s Road) upstairs cafe area on Tuesday, April 13 at noon.  If it’s a nice day, we’ll meet outside.  The meeting will include an informational session on rescuing native plants at construction sites and an overview of “Hearts-a-bustin’” (Euonymus Americanus). Future meetings are tentatively scheduled for the first Monday of the month, with May 3 scheduled for the next meeting.  The location of the May meeting will be announced at a later date.

Meetings will focus on education and identification of wildflowers and native plants.  Some initial ideas for group activities include:

  • Demonstration garden using native plants, in collaboration with the City of Chattanooga
  • Plant natives in drainage areas of subdivisions (including rain gardens)
  • Present a garden tour of gardens using native plants
  • Plant swaps
  • Buy native plants wholesale, or get discounts at selected nurseries
  • Outings to wildflower walks, native plant nurseries, gardens, hikes
