Native Plant Sale at Lake Junaluska


Lake Junaluska, N.C. - All are welcome to attend a plant sale at the Corneille Bryan Native Garden at Lake Junaluska on Saturday, April 29. The sale will primarily feature perennials and will also offer a few shrubs and trees. All the plants being sold are native to North Carolina.

The sale will happen at the top of the garden, at the intersection of County Road and JB Ivey Lane.

The garden is home to over 500 species of native plants and serves as a haven for birdlife. It was named in memory of Corneille Downer Bryan, the wife of Bishop Monk Bryan, who served as Nebraska Area bishop of The United Methodist Church from 1976 to 1984. The sale will also be an opportunity for locals to see the garden in bloom, as early spring is its most colorful time of year.

 Janet Manning, the director of horticulture at the Corneille Bryan Native Garden, said the event will build community for gardeners.

“It’s really an educational outreach to let people know how to grow native plants at home,” Manning said. “Visitors should feel free to bring their questions.”

The plant sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 29 and is cash or check only .
