Open House Weekends

Though we are open to the public throughout the year, we hold Open House weekends during both the fall and spring bloom seasons.  These weekends always feature large- and last-chance plant sales, and usually coincide with events at other local nurseries. 

Hours: Friday & Saturday:  9am - 5pm
Sunday:  1pm - 5pm

Open House:  Fall Fest

Fall Fest weekends celebrate cooler weather and the start of the fall bloom season.  Many of the C. sasanqua and hybrid cultivars take center stage while the other trees and shrubs display fiery fall foliage. 

2018:  October 5-7, 12-14, 19-21
2019:  October 4-6, 11-13, 18-20

Open House: Winter Wonderland

If you're planning a trip from out of town, this is the perfect opportunity to have a splendid weekend adventure and maximize your trip.  You'll likely catch winter bloomers on their last act while the curtain rises on the earliest blooming C. japonica cultivars.  Have all your new additions ready for planting as soon as spring rolls in by also visiting the Open Gardens and Nursery at Plant Delights in Raleigh.

2019: February 22-24

Open House: Spring Fling

Nothing can prepare you for the absolutely breathtaking sight of hundreds of Camellias in full bloom.  Lilacs, Forsythia, and Viburnum typically add to the extravagant show, but our lovely heat-tolerant Primula hybrids always try to steal the stage.

2019:  March 1-3, April 5-7, 13-15, 19-21
