2017 West Cook Wild Ones Native Plant Sale


2017 Native Plant Sale

A big THANK YOU to everyone who supported West Cook Wild Ones through our plant sale and all the butterflies, bees, birds and other creatures through planting natives!


We may have some extra Monarch Kits available in July. If so, we will let you know how to purchase one.

The school PTOs will be receiving checks for $8 per Monarch kit once our finances from the sale are settled.

If you liked our plant sale, consider VOLUNTEERING to help next year. More help makes plant sorting and pick-up go quicker!

We’ve had to delay the pick up date because of the spring weather which has made growing conditions difficult during a time of high demand for native plants.  By waiting a few weeks, we can ensure more orders will be filled with beautiful, healthy plants.  

Liven up Your Landscape with Beautiful Native Plants

Need a little more inspiration or guidance?  We have selected some plants from our sale and arranged them into some potential plans.  You can consult with a landscaper or a garden coach to see how to adjust them or to work with your existing gardens.  There may be some people available on the day of the sale to help as well.   Most of the plants would be planted about 18″ apart.  Some of the narrower plants, such as liatris, would be planted more closely.  Most plants will spread over time through rhizomes or seeds to fill gaps.  If you want, for example, more purple coneflower, clip the stem and lay the stem and seedhead where you want your seedlings.  Keeping the stem/seedhead there reminds you next year where you had put the seeds. (Consider keeping stems up to offer seeds to birds though–goldfinches, sparrows, love them!).
