Lan Su plant sale alert!

Just what you need to know this fine almost-spring day: a local yearly plant sale has expanded!

Lan Su, the Portland Chinese classical garden holds a plant sale each spring, and offerings have been interesting in past years. The main focus is on typical plants grown in the garden, like bamboo, rhododendrons and camellias, but there are lots of other options. This year's sale is Saturday and Sunday, March 20 and 21 from 10 to 3. The impressive specialty plant vendor list numbers over 20 this year. There also will be folks from the Oregon Camellia Society showing camellias and answering questions.

This year, the sale is being held outside the garden walls, which means you can attend the sale without paying for garden admission. But plan to visit the garden another time - it's lovely and serene almost any day of the year.

The early-bird, members only sale happens from 9-10 on Saturday.

I hear it's going to be a beautiful weekend, perfect for plant shopping and gardening.

See you there!


  1. Hi Jane~~ I'll be shopping with you vicariously. Please write about what "we" buy!

  2. Lovely pictures Jane...I just might see you there! What a beautiful day for a plant sale! I'm favoring the forecasts that are saying 70...spring!!

  3. Thanks for the heads-up. Now there is no excuse for missing out (other than perhaps being seduced by our own gardens).

  4. I feel so lucky to have visited this garden (on Megan's recommendation) last year. I will always remember it and hope to return in another season, even though early spring was really interesting. What did you get? Can't wait to see!


Thank you in advance for jumping through the annoying but necessary word verification hoop to leave your thoughts!
