The JC Raulston Arboretum offers several ways to purchase plants for your landscape.
JC Raulston Arboretum Plant Sale
The JCRA offers thousands of plants for sale every spring. See what we've offered through the years.
Members-only Preorder Plant Sale
Just in time for fall planting, the JCRA offers its members an opportunity to preorder select plants from a variety of growers. Join today so you don't miss your chance to order some great plants in October. The 2021 Members-only Preorder Plant Sale beings this fall.
Plant Sale Buggy
Next time you are at the JC Raulston Arboretum, be sure to check out the Plant Sale Buggy located outside the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center. First opened for business in summer 2013, it’s a popular spot for visitors to find a wide assortment of choice and unusual plants for your garden. Self-service purchases are made by cash or checks only, and it is open rain or shine during regular Arboretum operating hours. New plants are added weekly, so visit often.
We're excited to finally offer the Friends of the Arboretum access to the source of our mulch. A big thank you to the folks at NC State University's Horticultural Field Lab (HFL) for their role and support in making this happen. This is destined to become another Arboretum member favorite.
Your purchases keeps the JC Raulston Arboretum growing strong! Each gift, membership, or purchase supports the NC Agricultural Foundation, Inc. (Tax ID #56-6049304) for the benefit of the JCRA.
