Smithfield Tree Day – Saturday, May 4, 2019

The Smithfield Conservation Commission will hold their annual tree sale, for Smithfield residents only, on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at the front of McCabe School on Pleasant View Avenue.

This year the event will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will run until either the plants sell out or noon. We ask that there be no early birds. The cost will be $10.00/pair.

The commission will be offering the following native plants:

Spiraea: This is a hardy flowering plant native plant with leaves are usually simple and short stalked, and are arranged in a spiraling alternate fashion. The many small flowers are clustered together in either dense panicles or umbrella like corymbs or grape like clusters.

White Turtlehead: A native species consisting of spike-like clusters of individual white flowers with a pink tinge resembling actual turtle heads.

Blazing Star: Is another low maintenance native perennial with vibrant purplish flowers growing on feathery clusters on 2-4 feet long erect stalks.

As mentioned above these plants are hardy and very easy to grow and maintain. In addition, they attract butterflies and other major pollinators.

The commission looks forward to seeing you on May 4th.
