Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Centre County Annual Plant Sale May 19, 2018 from 9-3
Our retail sales area will NOT BE OPEN except for limited days as will be posted on this website, and will not be open on the days of the sales listed above.
Plants offered for sale at the native plant sale are natives to PA only (of course!) while we offer some other selections at the other plant sales.
Our focus this year is once again on native herbaceous perennials with a limited selection of rock garden favorites.
The Rock Garden is a perennial nursery offering rock garden and alpine plants as well as a selection of hardy perennials, including natives, suitable for perennial beds or borders or meadow.
We also sell hypertufatroughs so that you may create your own miniature alpine garden. Choose a dwarf conifer and some alpine plants to plant your trough. If you like, we will plant it for you. We also sell DownUnder Pots and stands.
Visit the Penn State Arboretum for inspiration, then come see us for plants and shrubs!
The Rock Garden is located at 176 Brush Valley Road in Oak Hall, Pennsylvania, a small village just east of State College, home to Penn State University. We are at the base of Mt Nittany about one half mile from the 322 bypass.
