Spring Native Plant Sale

  • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Umstead State Park (2100 N Harrison Ave, Cary, NC 27513)


Registration is closed

Our Spring Native Plant Sale will be on April 15 from 2-4pm. We'll be selling locally-grown, native ferns, grasses, flowers, shrubs and trees.

We're excited to offer new species this year. At our past events, we had lots of requests for more ferns and evergreens, and we now have some to offer you! We also have new flowers and more berry-producing bushes and trees for birds (& humans!).

100% of all proceeds from the event go to support William B. Umstead State Park.

Location: We'll be set up in the grassy area on the right when you drive into the parking lot at the Harrison Ave, Cary entrance to Umstead State Park (2100 N Harrison Ave, Cary, NC 27513).

Registration is not required, but will help us know how many to expect.
