Plant Sale

Our Fall Native Plant Sale will feature a variety of spectacular Texas natives, including succulents, grasses, perennials, wetland plants, shrubs and trees. Not only are they beautiful, but native plants help conserve water, reduce mowing costs, provide habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, protect the soil, and save money on fertilizer and pesticides.

Friday - Sunday, Sept. 25 - 27 & Oct. 2 - 4, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. – Members only (Sold Out) 
Friday - Sunday, Oct. 9 - Nov. 22, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. – Open to the public

Entry to plant sale is free with regular admission (always free for members), but must be reserved in advance.

What to Expect

For those of you who have been to our previous plant sales, things will look a little different this season. We're spreading the sale out over nine weekends (the first two weekends are for members only), Friday through Sunday, with very limited capacity and timed entry. Our dedicated horticulture staff will be replenishing the open-air plant sale area each day and will still be on hand to point you in the right direction. Please read our tips below on how to prepare for a great plant sale experience and help preserve a spacious atmosphere for all shoppers, staff and volunteers.

Members get first pick Sept. 25 - 27 and Oct. 2 - 4 plus free admission as always! Join now for early access (plus all the other perks of membership). Please note: We have extended the duration of the sale significantly (with six members-only days) in order to space guests out safely with timed admission slots.

 

What You Can Do for a Great Plant Sale Experience

  • Reserve your spot in advance and plan to visit the plant sale when you first arrive at the Center. We ask that you arrive within the first 30 minutes of your reserved entry time.
  • Wear a face covering and maintain 6 feet of distance (at minimum) from staff, volunteers and other guests. Please review all of our safety guidelines here. 
  • Shoppers only in the plant sale area - if you are visiting with non-shoppers, they may explore the gardens while you shop.
  • Bring your own cart if possible.
  • Bring a full reusable water bottle and wear a hat and sunscreen. Most of the sale will be held in a semi-shaded area.
  • Make a shopping list using the plant list provided to minimize contact with staff and maximize your time in the shopping area. Note: Plants will be organized in the sale area alphabetically by their botanical name. 
  • Our staff will be working hard through nine weekends of plant sales. To help flow and maintain distance, we strongly encourage you to email us in advance with any questions.
  • After you purchase your plants, please feel free to explore the Center.
  • Be prepared to pay with a credit card. No cash or checks will be accepted at the sale.

TICKET NOTES:

  • When you click to reserve your spot, the page may say "sold out." Simply click "other dates" and scroll the calendar to see which dates still have time slots available. Please only purchase plant sale tickets for those who will be shopping.
  • For any non-shoppers (including children), please purchase regular admission tickets.
  • Can't make it or bought too many tickets? Someone else would love your spot! Email Guest Services for cancellations. 
  • If you are not able to reserve a spot, it is possible (but not guaranteed) that cancellations may allow for walk-up shopping. You must still reserve a general admission ticket to visit the Center.
