Fall Plant Sale

From September - October, the campus greenhouse offers its annual fall plant sale featuring several varieties of Chrysanthemums (mums), which add a gorgeous pop of color to fall garden landscapes. Several houseplants, such as succulents and cacti, are also available. A full catalog will be available in Sept. 2023.

Odd Ball Plant Sale

Once a year, the campus greenhouse identifies assorted duplicate plants from the conservatory collection and odd plants collected over time. You might find something unusual or exotic because the plant selection varies every year. The "Odd Ball" sale is typically held around Halloween. Previous sales have included specialties like Clivia, lemon grass, assorted cacti, large and small succulents and bonsai.
