Spring Plant Sale and Day with the Experts

More than 3,000 native and desert-adapted plant varieties will be available for purchase at our annual Spring Plant Sale and Day with the Experts!

Plants will be sold in sizes ranging from 1- to 15-gallon containers. Staff experts will be on hand to answer customer questions about how to care for their new plants, and lectures and workshops are scheduled in the Gardens Amphitheater.

Among the plants offered for sale will be species of Penstemon, Tecoma and many other great spring perennials. The sale will feature a sampling of "ready to go" cactus and succulent container gardens, perfect for home entryways or patios, and event partner Moon Sun Cactus and Koi Gardens will be on hand selling a wide variety of cactus and succulent plants.

Hungry? Breakfast burritos, pastries and more will be available for purchase.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own wagons to transport purchases to their vehicles.

Springs Preserve members can take advantage of a special preview sale Saturday from 7 to 8 a.m.
