Each year, dozens of Redbud members and volunteers go all out to bring you a great native plant sale!

Our 2017 sale will feature native plants that beat the heat, including hand-picked, water-thrifty, locally adapted native trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and many hard-to-find species.  Check out the amazing variety of plants we expect to have
for 2017.

Native Plants – California’s botanical treasure!

Over 2,000 plant species are native to Placer and Nevada   Counties, a natural heritage bringing beauty, color, fragrance, shade, and wildlife to our communities and our homes.  Most California native plants are well adapted to long, dry summers, and some go dormant after blooming in Spring. When the rains return, plants reawaken, establishing strong roots.

This makes Fall the perfect time for planting! At the Redbud Native Plant Sale, we hope you’ll find just what you are looking for.

Get involved, volunteer for the Redbud Plant Sale! The Redbud Native Plant sale is only possible with the help of many dedicated volunteers. If you have already volunteered, thank you! If you haven't yet, you can sign up at Redbud's page:

Or, if you prefer, you can contact Diane at

Have fun, meet great folks, and help with Redbud’s 2017 Native Plant Sale.  You don’t have to be a member or have special knowledge to be a volunteer. To show our appreciation, volunteers who sign up in advance and work at least one 2 hour shift receive a free one gallon plant.

Experts Available

Expert native-plant gardeners will be available throughout the sale. Get advice on choosing plants for specific needs or locations, and about pollinator-friendly, drought-tolerant, fire-resistant, and lawn-alternative plants. 

Our native plant "Sages" can help you choose the right plants for your garden from a wide selection of healthy, beautiful plants. In addition to selections from specialty and wholesale nurseries, we will also offer plants grown by Redbud members, all tended with special care.

Time to Get Ready…

If you haven't already, it's time to research, plan, and identify plants you would like to add to your garden. See Calscape to find out, for example, what plants are native to your area, what their needs are (sun/shade, water requirements, elevation), how fast they grow, and what are their plant communities.
