Since I posted the results of the survey concerning the departure dates for ruby-throated hummingbirds, a blogger from Lawrenceville wrote to say that they spotted a rubythroat flitting about their Mexican sunflowers October 31. This sighting pushes back the latest departure date for a ruby-throated hummingbird this year from October 25 to the 31st.
Another blogger took the time say that the Georgia Native Plant Society web page is helpful in locating local nurseries that deal in native plants. The blogger went on the say that the GNPS holds native plant sales during the year.
This is great information since anyone that tries to find sources of native plants knows nurseries deal with native plants is often hard to find.
