(West Palm Beach, FL – April 14, 2017) The Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, dedicated to promoting the preservation, conservation and restoration of native plants and native plant communities of Florida, is hosting its 12th Annual Rare & Unique Native Plant Auction on Tuesday, May 16.

Native plants are the gateway to sustainability. They protect the food web, attract butterflies and birds, conserve water, eliminate the need for harmful sprays and create an ecologically friendly and sustainable landscape.

The 12th Annual Rare & Unique Native Plant Auction will feature Palm Beach County resident Rufino Osorio, freelance writer, photographer and author of the cherished “A Gardener’s Guide to Florida’s Native Plants”. Rufino will share his extensive knowledge of native plants to educate potential bidders about the plants offered in the Live and Silent Auctions.

The Live Auction, called GOING NATIVE ~ Harmonious Habitats will feature groupings of native plants in six categories – Pineywoods, Scrub-a-dub, Going Coastal, Hammock Time, Disturbed and Wet & Wild. The silent auction will feature many unique or hard-to-find native plants, plus gardening and plant related items and services.
