The UCR Botanic Gardens 44th Annual Spring Plant Sale

Spring is a popular time for fairs and sales of all kinds, and when garden opportunities arises, we always try to participate in a few of the local favorites.

Last week, we ventured out to the UCR Botanic Gardens nestled in the foothills of the Box Springs Mountains on the east side of the University of California, Riverside Campus for their 44th annual spring plant sale. It’s the Gardens most popular event of the year and they always have a wide variety of plants for sale. Plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies, drought tolerant and California Native plants as well as plants that are suitable for cut flowers use…like our Protea, of course.

It’s a fabulous time of year to visit the UCR Botanic Gardens - not only to enjoy this living plant museum with more than 3,500 plant species from around the world, but to wander through the four miles of scenic trails or just relax on a bench and enjoy the beauty. Enjoy these photos…
