Spring Plant Sale

Plant List Archives

Welcome to our spring plant sale! 

Trust us, this is a sale you don't want to miss. It is the largest sale we’ve had in 15 years—perhaps the largest sale ever. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to review the list, it's extensive! Over 300 different kinds of plants!

Mark Weathington, our director, takes plant curation and collecting very seriously and this sale captures his passion for the rare and unusual! The list was hand-selected by Mark and our horticultural staff and they can't stop talking about all the cool plants included. 

We've got reliable garden performers, new introductions, incredibly showy selections, and choices for the most esoteric plant nut. We've even got a few things that would challenge even the best gardener but will provide years of bragging rights and Facebook posts if successful. 

If you have participated in a JCRA plant auction or plant sale recently, your account is still in our e-store. All others need to set up a Clickbid account in order to purchase anything from this site.
