Dallas Arboretum Plant Sale

Wow! There sure are a lot of plant sales coming up in April. I just received notice of a sale at the Dallas Arboretum on April 23 (admission to the Arboretum required). Here are the details from the message:

2nd Annual Plant Sale benefiting the Dallas Arboretum's Trial Program Saturday, April 23rd 8am-5pm


The Dallas Arboretum Plant Trial Program tests thousands of new plants each year. The best plants for North Texas will be available for purchase at the 2nd Annual plant sale. You won't find unique plants like these that are adapted to North Texas anywhere else in Dallas, so come early! Dallas County Master Gardeners and Arboretum Horticulture staff will be on hand to answer your plant questions!

Freesia alba - Hardy Freesia

How about a hardy freesia for North Texas! This white flowered bulb blooms through out March with the most wonderfully scented flowers you've ever smelled! Goes dormant in early summer. Must have well drained soil and full sun. Plant it with dry land plants like agaves for the perfect combo (and we'll have them for sale too!)

1 gallon container

Price $9.95

Agaves, Maples, Perennials, Annuals & other hard to find plants!!!!

Crave Japanese Maples? Well I'll have a selection of some of the hardest to find varieties!

Addicted to Agaves? I'll have lots of hardy agaves and yuccas for purchase! Come early to get the best selection.

Want to know about the plants before you buy? Want to come to the plant sale early?

Sign up for PLANTS WITH PIZZAZZ!!! on Friday April 22nd.

Beginning at 4:00pm I'll introduce you to some of the best plants from our Trial Program.
