In a recent blog concerning partridge pea, I mentioned that it might be difficult to find partridge pea plants at a nursery this time of year. Well, as it turns out, one of our fellow bloggers wrote that she had recently seen potted partridge pea plants at the Shady Oak Butterfly Farm located in the north central Florida town of Brooker.
If you are looking for a source of this valuable native plant, you might find it worthwhile to check out this establishment. The address for the facility is shadyoakbutterflyfarm.com. Even if they have sold out the plant since the response was sent, I think you will find it worthwhile to visit their website. The colorful site is full of information about their butterfly operation as well as plants of value to butterflies. They do offer mail order services.
