High quality native Michigan plants/wildflowers, annuals, perennials, Conservatory Greenhouse plants, herbs, organic heirloom tomatoes and more will be featured at the 42nd Annual Spring Plant Sale Fundraiser. Trillium, Solomon Seal, Green Dragon, and plants that bring back the bees will also be available for purchase, plus guests can obtain winter aconite, a unique find thanks to the long winter we experienced. Cranbrook House and Gardens Auxiliary volunteers, some of which are Master Gardeners, will be on hand and ready to share their green thumb knowledge with guests. Visitors can also purchase an assortment of Thistle Gift Shop locally produced arts and crafts merchandise, honey, bees wax candles, and Cranbrook memorabilia.
Native plants/wildflowers are the biggest seller at the fundraiser. Some are grown at Cranbrook Gardens while others are rescued before being wiped out at construction sites. Anyone aware of a site for sale that has trillium or any other wildflower growing on it is asked to please send the address and contact info for the seller to the Cranbrook House and Gardens Auxiliary. The Native Plant/Wildflower group will then obtain permission to go and check out the site.
Please park at Christ Church Cranbrook, shuttle service is provided. Guests are
encouraged to bring wagons to transport their purchases back to their vehicles.
Uneven terrain in some areas may make walking difficult. Assistance for
persons using wheelchairs/walkers is recommended.
