Go Native!

This year’s Spring Fling celebrates Hilltop’s commitment to Go Native! while adhering to our commitment to masterfully collect people and plants and bring them together in the unique, natural space that is the LSU Hilltop Arboretum.  We will offer an expanded selection of native plants and feature over 300 species of native and traditional trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, ferns, camellias, and grasses, all sourced from trusted nurseries in Texas and Louisiana. A plant availability list will be published on our website the week of the sale. 

As always, we will have plant experts on hand to help with plant selections; however, you are responsible for managing your purchases and getting them to your car. Please bring your own wagon and helper. Hilltop will have a limited number of wagon and helpers available to rent for $5. There will be no plant holding areas.
