NORFOLK, VA. (WAVY) - The Norfolk Botanical Garden was a great place to take your mother Sunday morning for some last minute gifts.
The garden hosted its annual spring plant sale this Mother's Day weekend, with more plants than ever before.
The 2013 signature item was the native azalea. It was just one of thousands for sale at bargain prices.
"This is a place where local people can come and see what you can grow here in Tidewater, Virginia," said Les Parks, Norfolk Botanical Garden spokesperson. "The number of plants we can grow here is phenomenal."
WAVY.com caught up with June Neuschwander and her daughter, while they were browsing the selection.
"My daughter picked this out," said Neuschwander, showing off the plant in their cart. "She liked the yellow flowers and thought that would look nice in our garden."
The Norfolk Botanical Garden is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
The spring plant sale, which ran from Friday to Sunday, is historically one of the biggest fundraisers of the year.
