These garden tours are arranged so guests may stroll leisurely through approximately seven private gardens. Guides are stationed at each location to provide information about garden design, plant material, and history. Colorful blooms are found in many of Charleston’s spring gardens, while others display elegant, limited palettes of green and white. Scale and proportion are deftly used to complement each house, whether it boasts a small courtyard space or a series of garden “rooms.” In addition to frequently favored plants, such as azaleas, camellias, climbing roses and tea olives, look for masonry walls, wrought iron gates, parterres edged with boxwood, water features, statues, and garden rooms with slight but changing elevations as you stroll through a selection of sophisticated Charleston gardens.
