Support the Garden at our Annual Fall Bulb and Native Plant Sale Fundraiser. You will find spring flowering bulbs, garlic bulbs, native and water-wise plants, ornamental grasses, flowering perennials and more!

Fall is a great time to plant, and the best time to plant spring flowering bulbs, as well as garlic and shallots. We will have several selections of garlic bulbs for sale, and a variety of flowering bulbs including: Daffodils, Tulips, Hyacinth, Flowering Onion, early blooming miniature bulbs, and even some fall blooming bulbs.

Although not quite as extensive as the Spring Plant Sale, we believe our Fall Sale has the best selection of water-wise and native plants! If you haven’t come to our Fall Plant Sale yet, it’s about time you did.

There are so many species and cultivars of ornamental grasses, offering a variety of different sizes, heights, colors, and textures. Allow yourself some time to enjoy the Garden before shopping and see how these fabulous grasses may work in your yard.

There will also be a wide selection of flowering perennials, including selections for both sunny and shady locations, and a variety of own-root roses! Take your time to browse through treasured and to hard-to-find gems.
