Nurseries Caroliniana

OMG!  Spent the day doing a roadtrip to Nurseries Caroliniana in North Augusta, South Carolina, with my friend Carole Simpson (of Ashe-Simpson fame).  Picked up all sorts of very cool plants for the Big House, as well as a couple of things for the garden at home.  More details to follow, but one of the more "regular" things I picked up was a pair of calla lilies which reach 7 feet in height (with 5 foot tall leaves), and are winter hardy!  For the time being, I'm a little zonked from spending so many hours in the car, but it was definitely worth the trip!  Can't wait to go back.

  1. I had to google the place. WOW! Can't wait to see photos.

    Out of curiosity....is there competition between the different estate gardeners?
