If this is a no-no, please let me know and I'll delete. It is a non-profit org so hope it is OK.

For anyone living in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Texas area, according to my listing of Texas native plants being offered, the following milkweed plants are currently listed to be sold at their plant sale Apr 26-27 from 10 am to 2 pm. If you live in Dallas/Ft. Worth, want to plant milkweed and having a problem locating plants or seeds, you might check with this organization regarding their sale. There are 18 pages of native plants to be offered, so more than just milkweed. .. Mary
