‘Mini Pennies’ are the cutest perennials you’ll ever see, according to the horticulture staff at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens.
These baby perennials come in small, four-inch pots and were grown from seed this year by the dedicated horticulture team. Though they may look mini when you pick them up, with a little time and patience, these babies will flourish and fill your garden for many years to come.
‘Mini Pennies’ make up the newest category in the Great Plant Sale being held by the Botanical Gardens.
This year, instead of publishing the list of available plants all at once, new categories of plants are being rolled out each month through March.
Members of the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will get early access at 8 a.m. Sunday, March 14. If you want to make sure you can get popular items before they are sold out, become a member. And members get 10 percent off their order!
Non-members can start ordering at 8 a.m. Monday, March 15.
In addition to the Mini Pennies, this release of plant categories includes over 90 types of annuals, hundreds of small potted succulents and an expanded selection of vegetables and herbs.
This is the final and biggest release of plants in the Great Place Sale–representing just over half the number of plants in the entire sale. As always, the sale features many plants propagated from the Botanical Gardens’ extensive collection.
You can also order from these categories, which were released earlier:
- Hanging Baskets and Mixed Containers
- Tropical Houseplants
- Fruit Trees
- Carnivorous Plants
The Great Plant Sale Online is a very important fundraiser for theBotanical Gardens, a not-for-profit organization.
Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com is the proud sponsor of the Great Plant Sale!
The deadline to order is April 15. You can place multiple orders and schedule one pickup time for May.
Curbside pickup will be held May 5-8 and May 12-15. You’ll sign up for a specific day and time.

Susan, that’s a good point.
It would be really nice to know which of the Great Plant Sale plants are native species. I’m trying to add only natives to my garden these days.
