Available ornamental plants highlighted in the sale will include both japonica and sasanqua camellias, indigenous and non-indigenous azaleas, and encore azaleas. To present the widest possible variety of plants, quantities of each are limited and popular items may sell out quickly. Shoppers are advised to arrive early for the best selection. Knowledgeable staff members and volunteers will be available during the sale to provide recommendations and answer questions.

Completing the restoration and enhancement of Wilmot Gardens is a substantial initiative and financial resources are one of the most needed commodities. Wilmot Gardens receives limited financial assistance from the University of Florida and is primarily supported by the contributions of donors and profits generated by semi-annual plant sales. All proceeds generated at the plant sales are used towards maintenance of the gardens and to sustain the therapeutic horticulture program.

Admission to the sale is free and cash or check payments will be accepted. Weekend parking is free on campus for all surface lots. Parking signage will be posted to direct traffic to free parking and parking and loading attendants will be available for assistance as needed. Wilmot Gardens is located at the corner of Gale Lemerand Drive and Mowry Road on the main campus of the University of Florida at 2023 Mowry Road.
