Members’ Plant Giveaway
September 20, 2014
10am to noon
In addition to making plant material from the collections available to researchers and other botanical institutions, the Arboretum distributes free plants to members of the Friends of the Arnold Arboretum in recognition of their support. Held on the third Saturday in September, the Members’ Plant Giveaway brings people and plants together in celebration of horticulture and plant diversity. The event gives members the opportunity to select free Arboretum-grown plants as a part of their membership benefits, gain first-hand expert knowledge from our staff, and enjoy the beauty of the Arboretum landscape during the change of seasons.
Event details (including the full list of trees, shrubs, and vines that will be available at the 2014 Plant Giveaway) will be mailed to all current members in August. The plant list and event brochure will be available for download from this page at that time.
If you have any questions, or would like to join the Friends of the Arnold Arboretum in advance of the 2014 Plant Giveaway, please visit our membership page. Find directions to the Arnold Arboretum, and refer to the event brochure [pdf] for specific directions to the event site and parking.
