Plant Sales

Bernheim Arboretum hosts a variety of different avenues for finding the perfect plant for your landscape. Two annual plant sales (Spring and Fall) feature Bernheim Select ™, a distinctive variety of plants propagated from Bernheim’s own collections, along with a varied selection of other unique trees, shrubs, grasses, vines, and perennial herbaceous plants. The Visitor’s Center boasts an ever-changing seasonal plant sale every day from April through December. As well as the  plant sale display area that can be found behind the Visitor’s Center, we also offer a Featured Plant of the Month. This program highlights a plant each month for its seasonal interest. Lastly, in each quarter’s Forest Echo, Bernheim features a hard to find plant that is available to members for reservation. This opportunity offers members smaller quantities of rare plants that are part of our Bernheim Select program.
