Annual Plant Sales

2020 Spring Plant Sale

In order to allow our staff to focus resources on significant greenhouse renovations, Lyon Arboretum will not be hosting a Spring Plant Sale in 2020. However, we will continue to offer a selection of plants for sale at our Visitors Center and at a series of smaller, “pop up” plant sales at various community events throughout the year!

We will also be hosting our Holiday Plant & Craft Sale in November this year, where we’ll have an assortment of new and interesting plants available for purchase.

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for periodic updates on our greenhouse renovation project and notifications about where to find our “pop up” plant sales.
