UD Botanic Gardens to host annual spring plant sale

The University of Delaware Botanic Gardens will be holding its 24th annual benefit plant sale Friday, April 29 from 3:00-6:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 30 (Ag Day) from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  UDBG Friends members can enjoy an exclusive day to shop at the sale on Thursday, April28 from 3:00-6:00 p.m.

The UDBG’s primary focus is students and learning and the sale serves as the major source of UDBG funding each year.  This year’s featured plant is Aesculus, commonly known as buckeyes. Selections include shrub and tree forms, those with attractive flowers, and some with large seeds that are a food source to wildlife.  This year, the UDBG will also feature daylilies, which are virtually indestructible and require minimal maintenance. An amazing selection of short and tall, early and late, fragrant, and nearly all colors will be offered.
