Garden center adds new plants, curbside pickup
The SCCF Native Landscapes & Garden Center recently received a new shipment of plants, which are now available online. Always popular as a monarch butterfly host plant, rose milkweed is one of the species. Readily adaptable to garden conditions, rose milkweed will be devoured by the caterpillars of the monarch butterfly. But, it’s adapted to this behavior and will sprout back from the roots. If there are no monarchs immediately nearby, the light pink flowers are always a delight in the spring and summer. Curbside pickup service is also available with no minimum order. Simply place an order online before Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. for pickup on Thursday between 1 and 2 p.m. at the SCCF Bailey Homestead Preserve, at 1300 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. Staff is available to assist in loading orders with strict social distancing measures in place. On-island deliveries are also still available with a minimum purchase of $50.
