Time: 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
Fee: Free, preregistration required.
The North Carolina Wildflower of the Year Program is a collaborative effort between the North Carolina Botanical Garden and the Garden Club of North Carolina. For the past 37 years, this program has encouraged the use and propagation of native plants in the home landscape by promoting a different North Carolina native species each year and distributing seeds to interested gardeners in the southeastern United States. The NC Wildflower of the Year Program is a part of the 'conservation through propagation' theme of the Garden that strives to ensure that wild populations of native species are not damaged by unethical harvesting or over-collecting. Come hear a retrospective on this long-held and much loved Garden program.
