Plant Giveaway
In keeping with its horticultural mission to promote plants hardy to the Boston region, the Arnold Arboretum holds a special event each fall to distribute plants to members of the Friends of the Arnold Arboretum in recognition of their support.

Offered on the third Saturday in September, the Members’ Plant Giveaway brings people and plants together in celebration of horticulture and plant diversity. The event gives members the opportunity to select free Arboretum-grown plants as a part of their membership benefits, gain first-hand expert knowledge from our staff, and enjoy the beauty of the Arboretum landscape during the change of seasons.

Event details are mailed to all current members at the end of August. See the plants offered at the 2015 Plant Giveaway – most collected from historical accessions in the Arboretum collections or gathered on expedition.

Members who are unable to attend the Plant Giveaway are invited to send a proxy with their plant coupon. If you have misplaced or lost your coupon, please visit the membership tent.
