Zoo Plant Sale

April 20

8 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Glorify your grounds with an outstanding selection of plants selected by Zoo Atlanta horticulturists at the annual Zoo Plant Sale. 

See the Plant list

  • Browse lush native plant varieties, including drought-resistant species; 
  • Get answers to your spring planting questions from Zoo horticulture experts; and
  • Take home gorgeous and unusual additions for your yard or garden. 

The sale takes place at the Conservation Education Gate at the edge of our Cherokee Avenue parking lot. Zoo admission is not required to attend.  

Early birds get the plants, and they’ve been known to sell out fast! The sale will end when our inventory sells out, or at 2 p.m., whichever happens first!

Proceeds benefit the Zoo Atlanta Horticulture Department. Checks, cash, and credit card accepted! Rain or shine.
