UC Riverside Botanic Gardens plant sale

Plant Sales



For over four decades the UCR Botanic Gardens has hosted the largest plant sale events in the Inland Empire. These events were recently redesigned to focus on plants propagated from our own unique collection and bring in local vendors to broaden the selection of plants suitable for the inland region.

Currently, due to the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, the Gardens are open with restrictions on gatherings, including our popular plant sales. However, our plants continue to flourish, so please check back for information about future Online Plant Sales. As always we will offer Gardens-propagated horticultural and native plants, cacti and succulents, patio and house plants, water efficient plants, colorful landscape trees, and numerous pollinator-attracting species.

Friends members will enjoy a 10% discount on all plants sold online, as well as many other benefits described under “Become a Member.” To become a member visit myadv.ucr.edu/forms/UCRBG
