From their website http://gardens.ucr.edu/events/fallsale.html :
"A typical sale finds nearly 10,000 plants and more than 400 kinds available. All types of plants are to be had, from a huge array of cacti and rare succulents to hard-to-find water and waterside plants and unusual patio and houseplants to colorful landscape trees. The emphasis is on water efficient plants from around the world, but a variety of shade and water tolerant selections are always available. A fine range of choice California native plants are available at both sales, though more are sold for the fall planting season. Only varieties that can be planted at the time of the sale are sold. Miniature roses, hundreds of herbs, orchids and wildlflower seeds round out the choices."
