Fall is the best time to plant in our region, and it’s a great time to plan for spring blooms! You’ll find an outstanding selection of native and non-native hardy shrubs, trees, perennials, wildflowers, ferns and cool weather annuals at the UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens Fall Plant Sale.

Who are we selling to? Anyone who loves plants! But, we always give just a little bit of preference to our members by letting them shop early, giving them a discount on everything they purchase (either 10 or 15% depending on the type of membership) and a free native plant. Plus we’ll have some facebook live broadcasts during the sale.
Not sure what plants you’re interested in? No problem! The best thing about the UNC Charlotte plant sale is the opportunity to talk with us about the plants — together we have over 100 years of real life experience with a wide variety of perennials, shrubs and trees!
