By Suburban Life Media
A Garden Walk presented by the Riverside Garden Club will be complemented by a plant sale at Ascension Lutheran Church, whose gardens are among featured attractions on the tour. Events take place from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 23.
Hardy perennials that grow well locally will be available at the sale, which offers 100 varieties of heirloom perennials plus limited quantities of designer hybrids. Experts will be on hand to answer questions at the sale, which includes the Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year: Polygonatum odoratum "Variegatum" or variegated Solomon's Seal.
Plants will be offered for $5 to $10, with details available by calling the church at 708-447-2600 or visiting ascension-riverside.org. Ascension Lutheran Church is at 400 Nuttall Road, Riverside.
Proceeds from the tour will be donated to the village’s tree replacement program. Garden Walk tickets cost $15 in advance at sites including Symmetry Hair Salon in La Grange Park, or $20 that day.
