JCRA Members are invited to Preorder Plant Sale

Camellia japonica 'Kujaku tsubaki' is one of several cultivars
 offered to JCRA Members in the Plant Sale.
The JC Raulston Arboretum is holding its third annual Members Only Preorder Plant Sale.

JCRA is often asked where we get our new and unusual plants and the answer of course is from a variety of sources, most not available to homeowners. We want to offer you, our members, a chance to purchase some of these outstanding plants for your own gardens as a way to thank you for your support. A few of these plants are already growing here at the JCRA but most are new to us as well and this is your chance to get these plants at the same time as the Arboretum. This is a preorder plant sale only. There will be no on-site sale.  The opportunity to purchase these plants is a membership benefit.  Please do not forward this information, except by way of encouraging friends and family to become Friends of the Arboretum themselves.

A description of each of the plants we're offering, some photographs, an the online order system are available at the URL below.
Proceeds from the plant sale support the JC Raulston Arboretum's General Fund within the North Carolina Agricultural Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit public charity that supports academics, research, and Extension at or through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at North Carolina State University.
