Great Falls Plant Sale To Benefit Riverbend Park

The Friends of Riverbend Park will hold its annual native plant sale from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 7 at the Great Falls Grange in conjunction with Great Falls Day.

The sale will feature plants native to the Potomac River Gorge, including shrubs, small trees and other plants. Native plants are those that were indigenous to the region before Europeans settled the area.

Because they are naturally suited to this area, native plants require little maintenance and watering once they are established.

Any plants not sold will be planted at the park. Proceeds will benefit Riverbend Park.

Great Falls Grange is at 9818 Georgetown Pike (Route 193). For information on the plant sale, call 703-324-8662; for information on Great Falls Day, visit gfhs.org/gf_day.htm.
