On Tuesday, May 25, from 4 – 7 p.m., upper-level members of The North Carolina Arboretum Society will receive priority access to our 2021 Plant Sale during this special preview. All members Rhododendron-level and higher will have the opportunity to shop a stunning assortment of plants grown right here at the Arboretum — including many of the beautiful plants featured in our seasonal landscapes — before the sale opens to the public. All proceeds from this portion of the sale benefit The North Carolina Arboretum Society and support the Arboretum’s educational programs, facilities and exhibits year-round. Join us outside to take home your very own piece of the Arboretum; we can’t wait to see you and thank you for your support in person!
Plus, don’t forget to join us on Friday and Saturday, May 28 and 29, when we will be hosting a variety of local growers and businesses from across our community for a special Tailgate Market. These vendors will be offering an outstanding collection of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, herbs, houseplants, cut flowers and natural products, all gathered into one place.
