Join us on Sunday, May 5 for the Garden Party and Rare Plant Auction. This signature event is designed for passionate gardeners, featuring rare and hard-to-find plants. Enjoy a wonderful afternoon at the JC Raulston Arboretum with wine, craft beer, and light hors d’oeuvres served on the lawn.

The highlight of the event will be a live auction during which a selection of very rare, very special plants will go under the gavel. Other collectible plants and garden items will be offered during a silent auction.
