Support local and migrating pollinators in your community while adding color to your fall landscape! Discover caterpillar- and butterfly-host plants during Mercer’s Pollinator Festival and Fall Plant Sale Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the East Side Gardens.
These plants not only provide a critical food source for bees and butterflies, they also add beauty to the landscape. Be on the lookout for these pollinator favorites at the plant sale:
• Showy Milkweed (Asclepias speciosa): Monarch caterpillar host plant
• White-veined Dutchman’s Pipe (Aristolochia fimbriata): Pipevine swallowtail caterpillar host plant
• Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea): Attracts a variety of pollinators
Other amusements include face painting, an observation honeybee hive, games, music, photo opportunities, and more. Festival-goers can attend hourly presentations on pollinators starting at 10:15 a.m., visit booths and exhibits, view an array of pollinator-themed scarecrows, and check out books onsite in the Library Quiet Zone.
A master gardener will also be available to answer your gardening questions.
