Tired of winter? Ready for spring? Well, so are we, and we're welcoming spring with a plant sale. It's not just any plant sale - it's a plant sale three ways! Shop our spring plant sale online. Shop the in-person sale early as an Arboretum member. Or, shop it in-person during Raulston Blooms!

Our sales have a reputation for including hot new introductions, hard to find specialty plants, and our favorite reliable performers. This sale has it all. Our horticulturists have been busy creating an amazing plant list including plants from greenhouses and nurseries around the country.

During our Members Only Spring Plant Sale, JCRA members will get the opportunity to shop the in-person sale early. It is our way of saying, "thank you for the continued support." Not a member? Join today! We are passionate about connecting people with plants and love our plant-loving community.
