Information About Our 2020 Fall Native Plant Sale

Saturday, Oct 10, 2020

Western Gateway Park

18560 Penn Valley Dr, Penn Valley, CA  95946

Thank you for making our 2019 plant sale
a wonderful success!

OR

We will have an online plant sale during the week leading up to October 10,
depending on how COVID circumstances evolve in Nevada and Placer Counties.

As we know more, we will update this webpage and provide info via Facebook and Redbud News.

The Redbud Chapter’s annual fall plant sale highlights the amazing range of beautiful California native plants and makes them available to the public. Many have been propagated by our Redbud Chapter members from local sources or selected from Northern California native plant nurseries, making them very adaptable to our local conditions. Most of these plants are unavailable or difficult to find at nurseries or stores with garden departments, where most people shop for plants.

We offer native plants in a variety of pot sizes so gardeners can select those suited to their sites and their pocketbooks. In general, native plants grown in 4-inch, quart and one-gallon pots and in “deepots” (for deep-rooted trees and shrubs), establish better and develop better root systems than those purchased in larger containers.

Time to Get Ready
