Native Plant Sales
Plant Sale Information
The CNPS Bristlecone Chapter holds native plant sales every year in the Bishop and Mammoth areas.
Bishop Native Plant Sale
The Bishop Plant Sale is the largest sale of the year, and in 2016 will be held on Saturday, September 10th, at the White Mountain Research Center, 3000 East Line St., Bishop from 9 to 11am. This year the native plant society will be able to take credit cards.
Plants: A wonderful array of local native plants is offered every year. Flowers, shrubs and trees adapted to our area will be for sale. Here's what's available as of September 1st in 2016. See our sortable database of species that have been available at our plant sales for ideas of what to expect.
Prices: Plant prices are $5.00 for small tree pots, $8.00 for gallon pots, and $10 for large tree pots.
If you have any of the black plastic pots from last year’s sale we would love to recycle them for you.
Proceeds from all of the native plant sales provide funding for our Mary DeDecker Botanical Grants. The grant program is a fitting way to remember Mary DeDecker’s many contributions to the people and plants of the Eastern Sierra.
Mammoth Plant Sales
The 2016 Mammoth Plant Sales are complete - Mammoth usually holds 2-3 smaller sales each summer. Contact Mammoth Plant Sale Coordinator, Sherry Taylor, at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be put on her mailing list for future updates!
