This Bay Area annual favorite draws an enthusiastic crowd of plant-lovers seeking out the uncommon and the unusual for their own gardens. With over 2,500 different kinds of plants, you can find the perfect fit for your Bay Area garden – many plants not found at other regional plant sales or commercial nurseries.
This sale has it all – succulents, ferns, orchids, natives, alpines, rhododendrons, perennials, houseplants, shrubs and trees! Plus, a special silent auction to include rare and exotic plants. Proceeds from the sale support the work of volunteers, nursery, curatorial and education staff.
