2018 Plant List

Please explore our inventory below which may experience additional updates prior to the start of the sale. You can use the sort and print features to generate your shopping list. Select the Camera icon to perform a Google search for images and information on many of these plants.

Select the Caresheet icon to view the Plant Care Sheet. These sheets have been compiled by the Desert Museum Botany Department. In some cases, plant care information from Mountain States Wholesale Nursery has been used to supplement the museum's own knowledge base.

As always, the region’s #1 botany experts will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice to aid your shopping. Proceeds from the sale support our important Desert Museum’s mission. Please bring your empty 1-gallon nursery pots to recycle for next year’s sale.
