Annual Rare Plant Auction @ Longwood Gardens Benefits Delaware Center for Horticulture







plants_large_photo1_M.jpg

The Delaware Center for Horticulture’s Communications Manager Wendy Scott (what a pro!) recently wrote to inform me that this year’s Rare Plant Auction will be held on Saturday, April 24, 2010 at Longwood Gardens.  Located in the beautiful Brandywine Valley, this event is one that every plant lover should attend.  And aren’t all gardeners curious about the “next big thing?” 

Just like no one wants to miss out on the latest in fashions from Paris, Milan or New York’s couture runways, so too, plant-loving enthusiasts (and that’s just about all of us!) won’t want to miss the premiere of what’s Hot in Plants for 2010. 

I’ll be there to blog about it. You should be there to enjoy the beauty of Longwood Gardens while sipping champagne (that combination alone is worth the price of admission 🙂 )
There are options for admission (see below) with Auction newbies and the under 40-year-old tribe gaining entrance for just $100 (or dinner in New York City!)  

It is the 30th anniversary of this gala event that raises more than $100,000 each year for the Delaware Center for Horticulture. Help celebrate and mark the occasion by attending the Auction.

You can register for the Auction and purchase tickets here

Mission Statement
The Delaware Center for Horticulture cultivates a greener community; inspiring appreciation and improvement of our environment through horticulture, education and conservation.
Longwood Gardens
Get to Longwood early – or spend the weekend. There’s plenty to do and see. Especially in the spring.  Glorious!
and this year’s signature program is “Making Sense: The Art and Passion of Fragrance.”   Ahhhh.
(And I love this about Longwood’s start.  Mr. duPont was a “tree hugger:” 


“In 1906, Pierre S. du Pont purchased the Pierce Arboretum to save its trees from being cut for lumber.  Over the next nearly half century, Mr. du Pont developed Longwood Garens into what it is today, a magnificent horticultural showplace.” 


Thank you, sir.

  • Hi Leann,
    I'd like to send you some more details about the Rare Plant Auction, including a great story about Pierre and Alice du Pont that is an inspiration for our "Pearl" Anniversary of the event. Is there an email address that I can use to send a Word doc to you? Or an FTP site I can post it and you can retrieve it?
    THANKS for this great post. We're excited to know that you're planning to blog the event. Let me know if you'd like some pictures (by Rob Cardillo) from last year's RPA, or if I can give you an image to replace the broken link at the top of this page.
