This spring, Ligonier Valley Historical Society and Penguin Court, a Preserve of Brandywine Conservancy, both located in Laughlintown, will host a native plant sale. These organizations are passionate about conserving and preserving the history and legacy of the Laurel Highlands. What better way to keep Pennsylvania beautiful than through an appreciation of her native flowers? These flowers paint the rolling hills of the Laurel Highlands. Planted strategically in gardens, these flowers will progressively bloom throughout Pennsylvania's spring and summer seasons.

Pre-orders begin April 1 and will run through April 24. All pre-orders MUST be pre-paid.

Supplies are limited, and will sell out quickly!
