For 20 years, one thing has been certain come April in El Dorado County and we don’t mean taxes. We’re referring to the annual Spring Native Plant Sale by the El Dorado Chapter of the California Native Plant Society (EDC CNPS).
This year’s sale marks the 20th year since the chapter was founded in 1994 that it has hosted native plant sales in Placerville, and many gardeners are especially looking forward to this year’s sale, foreseeing the stresses that the drought is going to be putting on everyone’s gardens, water supplies and water cost, and the fact that many native plants are uniquely adapted to the area’s drought-prone climate.
