See the list of trees, shrubs, and vines that will be available to Arnold Arboretum members at the 2013 Plant Giveaway, or download the event brochure [pdf].
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.
If you have any questions, or would like to join the Friends of the Arnold Arboretum in advance of the 2013 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.
