If you participated in last year's Southeastern Plant Symposium auction or a recent JC Raulston Arboretum plant sale or auction, your account is still here. Just sign in with your bidder number and password.
New participants will need to set up a Clickbid account in order to bid or purchase anything from this site.
Pick-up is at the Arboretum the week of June 15 to 18. We will only ship plants 1 gallon or smaller to out of town auction winners in the lower-48 states, so please read the plant descriptions to learn the size of the item you are bidding on. The shipping fee for plants is $10 per plant and only for plants 1 gallon or smaller. Sorry, we are not able to ship outside the lower-48 states.
You do not have to register for the Southeastern Plant Symposium to participate in the auction. If you are interested in taking a deep dive into what's new and exciting in the plant world, register now. We have 7 fantastic speakers lined up who are sure to excite, inspire and expand what you know.
