For over 30 years, veteran and novice gardeners alike have anticipated the Heard’s Spring Native Plant Sale, a rare opportunity to purchase some of the best plants for North Central Texas gardens and to obtain many rare plants. A Heard Museum Member Pre-Sale will be offered on April 23 from 12-7 p.m. The Member Pre-Sale is open to Heard Museum members only; however, memberships will be available for purchase at the event or online beforehand.
This sale will feature a huge selection of native plants, hard-to-find herbs and well-adapted plants. There are a number of other benefits to using native plants in landscaping. Using these plants that are naturally suited to Texas’ hydrologic issues is an excellent way to reduce supplemental watering. Many of the native plant species are also better suited to Texas’ climate and provide food sources and habitat for many kinds of wildlife.
The Heard’s plant sale will also feature a selection of native milkweed plants. Please see our website for the complete plant list (available soon) at www.heardmuseum.org/plantsale. Guests are welcome to bring carts or wagons to facilitate their purchases.
The plant sale will also be open to the public on April 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and April 25 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Museum admission is not required to attend the plant sale.
COVID-19 Safety Practices

We also ask that guests also practice all other recommended safety practices, including maintaining social distancing. Learn more at heardmuseum.org.
About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard. Miss Heard was 80 years old when she saw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard's mission of bringing nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore, and preserve our priceless environment is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
