Rosedale Nurseries, in Hawthorne, will host the 11th annual Native Plant Weekend from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on September 12 and 13, with a percentage of sales benefiting The Native Plant Center, which is temporarily closed due to Covid-19. Thousands of native plants will be in stock, and “personal shoppers” knowledgeable about them will be on hand to help guests select plants for their garden.

Guests are asked to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. Members of The Native Plant Center receive a 10 percent discount at the sale as well as all year round.

While the campus of Westchester Community College in Valhalla, where The Native Plant Center gardens are located, remains closed to visitors, the Center staff has been busy getting ready for the annual sale, as well as expanding the Lady Bird Johnson Demonstration Garden and planning virtual Go Native U classes for fall, says Director Carol Capobianco.

“We appreciate everyone’s support and understanding through these trying times and look forward to when we can be together in person once again,” she says, adding that the Center is looking for volunteers for gardening, educational outreach, marketing, fundraising and similar activities. “Many opportunities and flexible work times are available. Chances are we need the skills you can offer.”

Location: Rosedale Nurseries, 51 Saw Mill River Rd., (Rte. 9A), Hawthorne, NY. For more information about the sale, or about donating to or volunteering for The Native Plant Center, call 914.606.7870 or visit
