Lyon Arboretum currently hosts two plant sale events each year:
- The Holiday Plant Sale (annually in November, the Saturday before Thanksgiving)
- The Spring Plant Sale (month varies, typically April or May)
General Information: Our plant sales are free, public events that feature plants grown by our staff at Lyon Arboretum as well as plants from a range of other local nurseries.
Plants Featured: The selection of plants and crafts varies with each sale, but generally include many of the following:
- Ti Leaf varieties
- Native Hawaiian plants
- Fruit trees
- Floral arrangements, wreaths, lei, and oshibana crafts
Parking: Due to limited space, during plant sales public parking is along Manoa Road and the residential areas closest to the Arboretum. You can then walk up to the Arboretum, or enjoy our complimentary shuttle service. Shuttle pick up points are at the corner of Manoa Road and Po’elua Street, as well as the corner of Manoa Road and Nipo Street.
See map at right for parking and shuttle stop details.
