TOUR Glorious Gardens I

March 12 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Buy Tickets

These garden tours are designed for a leisurely stroll through some of Charleston’s loveliest 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 feature the more traditional Charleston garden design display of elegant 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. Each Glorious Gardens tour includes approximately six gardens and a wine reception in the garden of the Nathaniel Russell House Museum, 51 Meeting Street, from 4-5 pm.
