Citizens for Conservation Spring Native Plant, Shrub & Tree Sale

Citizens for Conservation Spring Native Plant, Shrub & Tree Sale

Home Newsroom Citizens for Conservation Spring Native Plant, Shrub & Tree Sale

All are welcome to come and shop over 18,000 hard-to-find plants from 225 species native to the Barrington area at Citizens for Conservation’s 22nd annual Native Plant, Shrub and Tree Sale!

It’s coming up from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, May 5th and 6th in the Good Shepherd Hospital barn area, east of the hospital, at 450 West Highway 22 in Lake Barrington.

Buyers can choose from a huge selection of robust, hardy native plants, including perennials, ferns, sedges, and grasses. As part of CFC’s Milkweed for Monarchs campaign to sustain monarch populations, thousands of milkweed plants from numerous species will be available at discounted prices.

May 4th from 11 am-6 pm is pre-order pick up day. All CFC members are welcome to shop on the 4th along with people who have pre-ordered plants. The public sale on May 5 and 6 is from 9 am-3 pm.

Each spring, CFC’s annual Native Plant, Shrub and Tree Sale attracts customers from as far away as Wisconsin. Gardeners value the sale both for the abundant supply of hard-to-find native plants and for the information on planting and care shared by CFC volunteers. The sale has been so successful that CFC now offers a native tree and shrub sale in the fall as well.

CFC’s ability to set up this huge event is contingent on volunteers. They particularly need volunteers to set up tables, unload plant delivery trucks, label plants, fill pre-sale orders and arrange plants on tables in the week before the plant sale. At the plant sale they need people who are knowledgeable about native plants to give advice to shoppers and we need people to help load vehicles. After the sale, they need help taking down everything and putting it away. Sign up for a volunteer shift at our next plant sale.


Citizens for Conservation’s mission is “Saving Living Space for Living Things” through protection, restoration and stewardship of land, conservation of natural resources, and education. For more information about the work they do, visit their website at CitizensforConservation.org.
