Members' Plant Sales

These plant sales feature plants that are suited to our climate and are very reasonably priced, starting at $2 a pot. Our silent auction plants are legendary for offering unusual plants, as well as hypertufa troughs and other sought-after items.

Plant donations are accepted from 8:45 to 9:45 AM, and plants for sale may be previewed up to 10 AM. The sale opens at 10 AM. Plants sell out fast, so we strongly recommend arriving before 10 and using the preview period to decide which plants you want.

Instructions for donors: Plants must have a white label with the botanical name of the plant on one side and donor's name on the other side. For every 10 plants donated, donors receive 10 free plant labels and the right to select one early-choice plant (up to 5 early-choice plants). You'll be allowed several minutes to shop for your early-choice before non-donors start shopping. (Early-choice plants aren't free plants; you still pay full price.) Plants of exceptional rarity or quality are welcomed for the silent auction; extra credits for early-choice plants will be given.
