Springs Preserve to host Autumn Plant Sale, Saturday, September 17
Desert-adapted plant species can be yours at the Springs Preserve’s Autumn Plant Sale, Saturday, September 17, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The sale will feature limited quantities of approximately 3,000 native and drought-tolerant plants, sold in sizes ranging from 2 inches to 5 gallon, as well as a handful of larger specimen plants. Prices vary from $3 each for 2-inch wildflowers, $7 to $10 each for 1-gallon plants, $17 to $25 for 5-gallon plants, and container gardens in various sizes run from $25 to $50 each. Specimen plants 15-gallons and larger are priced based on size.
Plant groupings will be available to assist visitors in choosing species that complement each other, taking into account different colors and textures, and tolerances to environmental conditions, such as plants that thrive in full sun or in shade.
Gardens staff experts will be on hand to answer customers' questions about how to care for their new plants. Food and beverage concessions will also be available.
Springs Preserve members are invited to take advantage of a special preview sale from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Admission to the plant sale in the Gardens Amphitheater is free. Regular admission prices will apply for access to museums and galleries at the Springs Preserve. Guests are encouraged to bring their own wagons to transport purchases to their vehicles. More information is available at www.springspreserve.org or by contacting Russ Harrison at 702-258-2462.
The Autumn Plant Sale is made possible in part through the generous contributions of NV Energy. The Springs Preserve is located at 333 South Valley View Boulevard, between U.S. 95 and Alta Drive.
