Native plants are flowers, grasses, trees and shrubs that have inhabited Michigan since before European settlement. Each year, Calvin College collects native seeds from West Michigan and propagate them in their greenhouses. The Native Plant Sale features more than 80 rare, unusual, and favorite varieties of native wildflowers, shrubs, and grasses for all growing conditions, including drought-tolerant, rain garden, and shade species.
