In the days prior to the Members' Day Plant Sale and Plant Distribution, you might want to visit Fairchild to take a look at examples of the Distribution Plants. Their locations in the Garden are mentioned at the end of each description. We will also be setting up the sale area in the Palmetum during the week before the sale to give our Members time to browse the selection.

Fairchild's Plot Map

Fairchild’s plant collections are planted in plots, and the plots are part of the Garden's overall design. At the end of each plant description, we list the plot location so you may look at mature examples of the plants we are offering at the sale.  For ease, we've also included a nearby landmark location for each plant.
