The Arbor Day Plant sale at The Morton Arboretum is one of the largest seasonal plant sales in the Chicago region. It offers more than 100,000 plants, including hundreds of species and varieties of trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, ferns, vegetables, and herbs.

Expert Plant Geniuses are available throughout the sale to answer questions, suggest plants, and help shoppers narrow their choices.

Once shoppers have paid, Arboretum staff members will help transport their plants to their cars.

Purchases at the Arbor Day Plant Sale support the Arboretum’s work as the champion of trees, leading scientific research, conservation, education, and outreach about trees in our region, as well as the care of our 1,700-acre living laboratory.

Members get first pick, so join today for the best selection.  Members, bring your membership card for admission to the Arbor Day Plant Sale.
