Welcome to our Spring Native Plant Sale!
FOR REDBUD MEMBERS ONLY: Our online plant sale is open April 18 12 noon to 7 p.m. We have limited plants for our upcoming sale to those that will do well when planted in spring. Because of the smaller number of plants, our sale will be limited to current CNPS members who list Redbud as their chapter.
Most plants we’ll offer are well-suited to firewise landscaping, including ground covers, perennials, and shrubs. The plant sale will be open Monday, April 18 online, only for Redbud members. Purchasers will pick up their plants in Grass Valley by appointment on Saturday, April 23.
Overview of Plant Sale
Redbud members will access the sale using the online Redbud store, as in our recent sales. Although the store will not be open until the sale begins, you can get an idea for what will be available by checking out our Spring Sale Plant List.
We’re limiting the length of the sale because we’ve found in previous sales that approximately 90 percent or more of all sales happen on the first day, with most orders placed in the first two hours.
As soon as you complete your plant purchase, you’ll be prompted to sign up for a pick-up time. The link to sign up will be on the checkout page and also your receipt. Please select a pick up slot immediately after completing your purchase. Pick-up times will be Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m in Grass Valley. The exact address will be at the top of the sign-up webpage.
Make Your Plant List
Preparing a list of plants you want to buy is essential to getting as many of the plants you like as possible. You can view what we will likely have available on our Spring Sale Plant List. As with past sales, we’ll likely need to make a few last-minute adjustments because of availability.
You can use our plant list and Calscape to plan your list. We’re also offering an illustrated Calflora list for this plant sale in advance so you can see the plants (none of the cultivars we’ll be offering will appear here, as Calflora focuses on plants that occur in nature). Be ready to buy the plants you’ll want!
Some species have sold out early in the past; we’ve done our best to grow more plants of those species. Nonetheless, as happens at many native-plant sales, some species will sell out quickly. Our best advice is, as they say, “Shop early for best selection.”
For our spring sale, we sent the online link to the Redbud Store for the sale via email and postcard. The postcards were sent by U.S. Mail only to people who decline to receive chapter emails and were current Redbud members as of April 7. Chapter members who do receive chapter emails should have received the store link in their inboxes. If you don’t see it, be sure to check your spam folder!
Overview of Plant Sale
When the sale begins, we'll open our online Redbud store, where you will be able to see plant photos and find information about each species for sale, including cultivation requirements.
