2010 Wildflower Symposium and Plant Sale
set for Sept. 25 in Winter Park

The Florida Wildflower Foundation's (FWF) 2010 Wildflower Symposium and Plant Sale on Sept. 25 will feature presentations on flowering native shrubs for landscapes, butterfly and pollinator plants, using wildflowers in landscapes, and wildflower advocacy. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs headquarters, 1400 S. Denning Drive, Winter Park.

A native plant and seed sale will be held concurrently, giving attendees the opportunity to take home many of the wildflowers and grasses they learn about. A silent auction will also take place, with seed mixes, plants, gardening utensils and ornaments, books and art up for bids. Proceeds from the event will benefit native wildflower research, planting and education.

Symposium admission is free for FWF members and $5 for non-members (click here to become a member). Box lunches are available for $5.
