Plantapalooza Plant Sales
Plantapalooza, which brings together three University of Georgia units for one big plant sale, will be held at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Trial Gardens and the UGA Horticulture Club. Each sale offers an assortment of garden plants that thrive in the Southeast. Horticulturists, volunteers and master gardeners will be on hand to help with plant selection and to answer gardening questions.
The State Botanical Garden of Georgia will have a large selection of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, herbs, vegetables and more will be at this sale, held in the garden’s horticulture complex. Many Georgia native plants are grown at the garden for this sale. This large selection ranges from newer cultivars to proven performers to Georgia natives. Look for the 2019 signature plant: sunflower (did you know there are several perennial and native species?)
The Trial Gardens at UGA grow and test the newest annuals and perennials from plant breeders throughout the world. Profits from the plant sale help fund research and continued support for the garden. The Trial Gardens are part of the horticulture department in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
The UGA Horticulture Club will be selling garden and landscape plants near the intersection of Riverbend and College Station roads. Horticulture faculty and students will be available to help with plant selection. Profits help fund horticulture club scholarships and educational activities at UGA.\
