Spirea Double Play Candy Corn
Spirea Double Play Candy Corn

The cooler temperatures that come with fall are easier on plants and on gardeners. The chance of rain increases as we head into winter, the intensity of the sun decreases and the soil is still warm which promotes root growth.  Trees, shrubs and hardy perennials planted in the fall have the perfect conditions to grow strong roots for optimum performance the following year.

We will be featuring ‘Double Play Candy Corn’ Spiraea with a kaleidoscope of colorful leaves and flowers, ‘Judy Zuk’ Magnolia with fragrant yellow blooms, three gorgeous selections of Barberry from the Sunjoy series, 'Mt. Airy' Fothergilla with gorgeous fall color, 'Baby Blue Ice' Chamaecyparis and many more beautiful plants to fill all your landscape needs.

Are you looking for planting and landscaping advice? Garden staff and Master Gardeners will be on hand to help customers with plant suggestions and expert gardening tips.

The public sale will be held from 9am - 2pm on Saturday, September 29 at the UT Gardens in Knoxville. Garden members can shop the preview sale on Friday, September 28 from 4 - 7pm. Memberships may be purchased or renewed during the preview sale or the public sale. In addition to having an early shopping opportunity, garden members receive 10% off their plant sale purchases during the preview or the public sale.
