Visit Tohono Chul’s Fall Plant Sale for an extensive offering of both the typical and the unusual, native, cold-hardy, and arid-adapted plants from agaves to Zauschneria and everything in-between. Our Members’ Only Preview hours have been extended due to the ever-growing popularity of this event. We encourage you to bring your own wagon, but we will have plenty on hand if you don’t have one. Don’t forget to check out our propagation greenhouse. Please note that the plant sale is located on the east side of the grounds in the Propagation Area at 7211 N.
