UTEP’s FloraFest Expands to Three-Day Event Starting Friday

The UTEP Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens will present FloraFest this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The annual event allows shoppers to choose from more than 2,000 native and desert-adapted plants and visit with local Master Gardeners and other plant experts for advice on how to care for their plants at home.

This year’s FloraFest will include a guest lecture from David Cristiani at 6 p.m. Friday, April 27 in the Undergraduate Learning Center (UGLC), Room 116.

Cristiani will present on the ecological reasons to cultivate arid land gardens – namely those for the Chihuahuan Desert – detail designs that work and don’t work, and assist in solving typical garden design issues.

A reception will follow the lecture.

Most of the plants sold at FloraFest are not available at local nurseries or retailers.

This is the only fundraising event for the maintenance and operation of the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens and is the largest sale of its kind in the region.

What: 2018 FloraFest Native Plant Sale
When: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29
Where: Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Garden, corner of Wiggins Way and University Avenue on the UTEP campus
