Fall Planting

Arboretum Hosts California Native and Fall Plant Sale Oct. 10-11

October 6, 2009

Looking for fall color? Perhaps some drought-resistant plants?

Try the Fullerton Arboretum this weekend for the California Native and Fall Plant Sale.

“Fall is the best time to plant natives and other related plants,” according to Evie Tyra, nursery manager. “We have numerous indigenous varieties that will be offered for sale, and they have been carefully propagated and grown in our state-of-the-art nursery by volunteers and staff. Many uncommon and hard-to-find plants will be for sale and several can be found growing on the Fullerton Arboretum grounds.”

Among the plants on sale:

  • Ceanothus ‘Yankee Point’ and Ceanothus ‘Joyce Coulter’ — both are low growing and spreading with blue flowers.
  • Trichostema lanatum or Woolly Blue Curls — a three-to-four-foot evergreen shrub with fuzzy violet flower spikes spring through summer and features narrow aromatic leaves.
  • Salvia apiana or white sage. White sage is a two—to—five—foot tall evergreen perennial. The flowers emerge in summer and are white with a little lavender.

This special sale will also include and large selection of Mediterranean plants, Australians, and low water plants.

Sales hours both days are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A special “Members Only” preview sale will be held Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Fullerton Arboretum is located adjacent to the campus one block west of the 57 freeway at Yorba Linda Boulevard and Associated Road.
