FloraFEST Native Plant Sale at UTEP

April 30, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Flyer for April 2022 FloraFEST

Join us at the region’s largest native plant sale!

The UTEP Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens will welcome all visitors to a one-day FloraFEST 2022 Native Plant Sale from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (or until we sell out!), Saturday, April 30th, at the UGLC Plaza. During the plant sale visitors can visit with Master Gardeners, horticulturalists, and other plant experts for advice on which plants will do best at their homes. The plant sale will sell mostly native and native-adapted plants (ones that are not native to our region but will grow well here), many of which are not available at local nurseries or retailers.


FloraFEST is the only fundraiser for the maintenance and operation of the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens, and we appreciate your continued support!


Join us for this spring’s FloraFEST Native Plant Sale and take home some of our region’s most beautiful plants. After shopping you might want to take some time to tour the unique and lovely Chihuahuan Desert Gardens.


Visit the FloraFEST website to learn more about the event including parking.
