Caring For Your New Plants

Conservation is the Goal
The staff at The Dawes Arboretum utilizes the fall plant sale to help fulfill our mission of enriching lives through the conservation of trees and nature. It also helps us to be able to provide our community with wonderful plants to enhance their landscapes.
Many of the plants in the sale are grown by Arboretum staff and on Arboretum grounds. We also feature plants we call “Dawes Favorites.” These are varieties and cultivar selections not commonly available in nurseries, for various reasons, but are particularly well suited to our Central Ohio climate and attractive.
