Saturday, September 15 – Arnold Arboretum Plant Giveaway

Now is the time to join or renew your membership with the Arnold Arboretum. The plant list for the 2012 Plant Giveaway is now available online. The 2012 event brochure [pdf] will be mailed to members in August, along with tickets and free plant vouchers.

The Fall Plant Giveaway, held annually in September, celebrates the Arnold Arboretum’s longstanding tradition of sharing and promoting woody plants for temperate climates. In addition to making plant material available to researchers and other botanical institutions, the Arboretum has traditionally distributed plants to members of the Friends of the Arnold Arboretum in recognition of their support. Held annually in September, the Plant Giveaway gives members the opportunity to receive free Arboretum-grown plants as a part of their membership benefits, gain first-hand expert knowledge from our staff, and enjoy the beauty of our 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 2012 Plant Giveaway, please email membership coordinator Wendy Krauss at or call 617.384.5766.
