CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Downtown Management District is replacing the downtown planters and giving away the old plants to whoever wants them.
"If you're an admirer of the DMD's planters in the district and wish you had some of your own, now's your chance," says an event page created by the Downtown Corpus Christi Facebook page.
The first plant pickup is going on until 3 p.m. Tuesday and there will be a second one on Wednesday from 9 a.m. to whenever they run out, at La Retama Park in downtown Corpus Christi.
Wednesday, they will have 227 Vincas plants and 30 Coleus plants to give away.
The plants are available to anyone, free of charge, on a first-come-first-serve basis.
