In appreciation of the support our members give to the JC Raulston Arboretum, we give them thousands of plants every year. Join or renew today to participate in our Annual Plant Distribution and Connoisseur Plants programs.
Annual Plant Distribution
The epic event of public horticulture where thousands of choice and rare plants disappear in five minutes after the whistle blows. The Friends of the Arboretum Annual Plant Distribution is traditionally held on the first Saturday of each October. Check our calendar to see when our next will take place.
Connoisseur Plants are rare new plants or hard to find old favorites, and they are part of the annual membership drive to benefit the Arboretum's many fine programs and its day-to-day operational expenses. These wonderful plants are sent to those who join the Friends of JC Raulston Arboretum at the Sponsor, Patron, Founder, Benefactor, or Philanthropist levels.
The JC Raulston Arboretum also sells plants during special events and at the Plant Sale Buggy to the public and our members.
