Plant Sales at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery

Several times each year, our support group, Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum, holds plant sales at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery, offering hundreds of different kinds of uncommon garden plants that have been locally grown, including the Arboretum All-Stars, our top recommended plants for Central Valley gardens. Dozens of volunteers work hard all year to grow plants for sale to support the Arboretum. Learn about volunteering at the Arboretum.

Spring 2015 Plant Sales

THE NEW FRONT YARD: We know that many homeowners out there are in the process of developing their “New Front Yard” by replacing high-water use plants with low-water alternatives. That’s why this spring you are going to find just what you need including our list of Low-water Plants You've (Probably) Never Heard of. (These plants may not all be available at each of our sales. Double check that the plant you are looking for is in our inventory (see below) and arrive early!)

Stop in for the area’s largest selection of attractive, drought-tolerant, easy-care, region-appropriate plants including lots of California natives and Arboretum All-Stars.
