In case you missed the Easter Showcase last month, you’ll soon have another chance to visit the Noelridge Greenhouse.
The free milkweed plant given with each purchase, in itself, is a great reason to go to the Mother’s Day Showcase, to help our monarch butterflies. In addition, you’ll see row upon row of flowers and a room full of stunning tropical plants.
Here is more from the City of Cedar Rapids about the event:
The annual Mother’s Day Showcase is Sunday, May 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Noelridge Greenhouse, 4900 Council Street NE.
