Add new life and beauty to your home by buying trees, shrubs, and perennials at our volunteer-run Cloney-Harris Plant Nursery and Pat Calvert Greenhouse, located next to the Graham Visitors Center,” states the Arboretum Foundation.

The spring plant sale takes place this year on Sunday, April 14th, and volunteers will be on-site from 10 am to 2 pm to help you find your plants.
