2023 Fall FloraFest

October 7, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us Saturday, October 7th, for the fall FloraFest native plant sale!  Fall is a great time to plant, as the cooler temperatures mean less stress for your new plants, and we will have lots of great selections for you to choose from.

The preliminary plant list for fall 2023 is now available! See the list of plants HERE.

For information about the sale location, shopping details including that payments are only with credit or debit card, and volunteer opportunities, click HERE.

Native plants are beautiful, and they help conserve water, require less maintenance, and are more cold-hardy than plants from other parts of the world. Native plants also provide food and habitat for birds, bees, and butterflies. Using native plants in your yard is one step that we can take to help restore a healthy ecosystem in El Paso.

FloraFest is the primary fundraiser for the maintenance and operation of the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens. Shoppers can visit with local Master Gardeners, horticulturists, and other plant experts for advice on how to care for their plants at home. We sell mostly native and native-adapted (plants that are not native to our region but will grow well here) plants, many of which are not available at local nurseries or retailers.
