Members-Only Early Access: Spring Plant Sale
Hampton-Preston Mansion : 1615 Blanding St., Columbia, SC 29201
Join us in the lush gardens of the Hampton-Preston Mansion* for Members-Only Early Access to the 2023 Spring 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 herbaceous plants and woody perennials to evergreen plants, 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 a gold-foliaged selection of American Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis ‘Blonde Envy’), a fascinating and unique passionflower (Passiflora × 'Incense'), and the impressively tall Mexican Tree Dahlia (Dahlia imperialis)!
*In anticipation of inclement weather, all plants will be on display and available for purchase inside the greenhouse at the Hampton-Preston Mansion (Updated April 3, 2023).
The sale will be open to the public from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 7, 2023, and 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 8, 2023.
Become a Historic Columbia member at any level to gain admission to this exclusive members-only preview sale from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 6, 2023.
