One event on Saturday, October 29, 2022 at 10:00 am


Visit the newly completed gardens of the Hampton-Preston Mansion for the Historic Columbia 2022 Fall Plant Sale!

One of two plant sales Historic Columbia holds every year, attendees will be able to purchase and learn about a wide array of plants propagated from the Living Collections across all of our Historic sites. From subtropicals to woody trees, all of the selections that will be offered are integral to the stories we tell on our sites and most are either rare or not offered elsewhere. Examples include an exciting new gold-foliaged selection of American Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis ‘Blonde Envy’) found in the wild by Director of Grounds Keith Mearns, a summer blooming 6’ tall daylily (Hemerocallis x ‘Autumn Minaret’), and the fragrant winter-blooming Asian Paperbush (Edgeworthia chrysantha)!

The sale will be open to the public from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday Oct.28 and Saturday Oct. 29.
