Free Perennial Plant Giveaway

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Openlands has been asked to distribute Free Plants on a first come first served basis-Tuesday, August 7th from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or until the plants are gone. The plants are dianthus and coreopsis perennials.

The plants will be given away at the north end of the Garfield Park Conservatory, 300 North Central Park Avenue, outside the gate to the Market Place, near the railroad underpass. There will not be a place to drive through or park at that point, so park your car first, either along Central Park Avenue or in the Visitors Parking lot. You will then have to walk and carry the plants you are given back to your car. Be sure to bring tarps or other protection for your car.

Please note:

The Conservatory and the Conservatory Alliance will not be able to answer questions about this plant giveaway – if you have a question email me at
