Scott Associates' 2015 Plant Sale

Cover your garden with the colorful continual summer blooms of Clematis. The 2015 Scott Arboretum Plant Sale will feature new-to-the-US-market clematis. In addition to flowering continuously throughout the summer, these selections are smaller in size making them ideal for small gardens, containers, and weaving between annuals, perennials, and shrubs.

Beyond the ornamental vines, shoppers can find a great selection ferns, hydrangeas, edible ornamentals, perennials and woodies all selected by Associates and Arboretum staff based on our experience growing and enjoying them at the Scott Arboretum and in their own gardens.
