Focusing on a Healthy and Native Woodland – One RRA Plant Sale and Community Barbecue at a Time!

July/August 2016


The Plant Sale Ladies have done it again. Each spring we can count on them to offer up for sale the best and most popular native plants to add to our woodland gardens. And each year more and more residents are coming on board to order plants and learn about creating and preserving a healthy native woodland environment on their own properties. This year was no different.

Here are a few of the impressive numbers of plants sold through this year’s sale.

  • Native trees: 85
  • Native shrubs: 248
  • Native wild owers, grasses and sedges: 600
  • Best selling native trees: Swamp White Oak and Redbud
  • Best selling native shrubs: Red Osier Dogwood, Oak leaf Hydrangea,
  • Spicebush, and Arrowwood Viburnum Best selling wild owers: Swamp Milkweed, and Cardinal Flower

Following the plant sale pick up on Saturday, residents joined together at the village hall to catch up and enjoy a barbecue. Our woodland community is special. The RRA plant sale and barbecue and the people who make it happen are some of the reasons why.

If you’re not taking part in our Riverwoods events, then you’re missing out. See the RRA and the RPC membership forms in this issue and get involved today.
