Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens has scheduled its annual Garden Gala Day Plant Sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 6 at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center, 2900 Raguet St. in Nacogdoches.
The sale will feature more than 300 varieties of hard-to-find, “Texas-tough” plants, including Texas natives, edibles, heirlooms, tropicals, perennials, shrubs and trees, with an emphasis on pollinator-friendly selections as well as exclusive SFA introductions, according to SFA Gardens officials.
The featured plants are trialed before being offered to the public and are produced by SFA Gardens staff members and volunteers.
The sale benefits the SFA Mast Arboretum, Pineywoods Native Plant Center, Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden and Gayla Mize Garden, along with educational programs that are held monthly at the gardens.
Educational programs provided at the SFA Gardens reach more than 15,000 participants annually, officials said.
Parking is available at SFA’s Janice A. Pattillo Early Childhood Research Center, 2428 Raguet St., and visitors are encouraged to arrive early and bring a wagon to haul their plants.
