Fall is the best time to plant California friendly perennials, shrubs, bulbs and wildflower seeds. Did you know that plants established in the fall and winter grow faster in the spring and require less water when summer comes? Help conserve water with the plants you select for your landscape and yard and plant water-efficient plants!

Join us for this spectacular event featuring an exciting collection of plants with many varieties including drought tolerant California Native plants as well as plants that attract hummingbirds or butterflies and plants that are fragrant or suitable for cut flowers or foliage.  You are sure to find the perfect plant!

2017 Plant List

At the Sale, each of the plants will have a detailed information sign and color photo to help you make your selections.

Several exciting classes are planned.  Typically these presentations are hosted by Master Gardeners and other horticulture experts.  We also generally host a children's activity too.  Review the schedule below and we hope you plan to attend one of these informative talks.
