Director of Horticulture’s Top 50 Plants Featured at the 2015 Plant Sale
Our annual SPRING PLANT SALE has long been known throughout the region as one of the best places to pick up unusual plants at bargain prices. This year is no exception, with a bumper crop of some of the best looking plants to date.
You’ll find a wide variety of plants from Incredible Edibles, the rare and unusual, to your favorites that thrive in the Hampton Roads region. Find the perfect plant to create a special look for your yard. Watch the below video with host Les Parks for a sneak peek into this year’s Spring Plant Sale.
The entire Horticulture Staff will be on hand to give expert help to customers. The Virginia Camellia Society and the Tidewater Rose Society will be selling their specialty plants all weekend and the Virginia Native Plant Society will offer a variety of plants only on Saturday.
Early Bird Special: NBG Members only 9 am – 10 am. Free with regular Garden admission.
2015 Signature Plant – Rabbiteye Blueberries, Vaccinium ashei (pictured below)
Our Signature plant this year is Blueberry, specifically Rabbiteye Blueberries which perform better in the heat and humidity of the South. They also require fewer chilling hours (hours below 40 degrees required to break dormancy and bloom). We will offer the cultivars ‘Tifblue’, ‘Climax’, and ‘Premier’. These blueberries are bred selections of native blueberries with attractive blooms, edible, delicious and healthy-for-you fruit (also good for native wildlife), and spectacular, long lasting fall foliage color.
