Polly Hill Arboretum Plant Sale


Plant Sale 2016 (5) - Cropped

During a normal year, The Polly Hill Arboretum Visitor Center and Plant Sale would open for the season on Memorial Day weekend, and remain open through Columbus Day open 9:30-4pm daily, excluding the 4th of July. This year, we will be offering an online plant with parking lot pickup, through July 1. Shop from a wide selection of trees, shrubs, and perennials available. These plants are chosen for their superior qualities and adaptability to our Island climate. 

How it Works:

As always, PHA members will receive a 10% discount. Members may use code “STEWARTIA” to receive a discount. If you are unsure of your membership status, please email [email protected] with your name and mailing address to request confirmation PRIOR TO placing your order. We cannot apply a discount after your order has been placed. If you would like to renew or purchase a membership at the same time, you may select “Membership” from the products listed.

If for some reason we cannot fulfill part of your order, we will issue a refund for that portion. We will not make automatic substitutions. All sales are final.

Step 1: Add plants to your cart and submit your payment.

Step 2: Watch your email inbox! We will contact you shortly after your order is processed regarding your pickup date/time. Please do not call or email the arboretum to arrange pickup; we will contact you.

Step 3: Once a PHA staff member has contacted you and set up a pickup window, come to the visitor center parking lot during your designated time to pick up your order at our contactless delivery area. Clear signage in our parking lot will lead you to the pickup area. There are three numbered bays; you will have been assigned a number and your plants will be waiting for you in the corresponding bay with your name on them. 

Step 4: Enjoy your plants!

A few things to be aware of during this time:

-Customers MUST wear a mask and gloves during pickup. Please maintain social distance of at least 6 feet and absolutely do not touch others’ plants. If you see something in someone else’s bay that you’re interested in, please check our online shop.

-Plants will not be delivered to your pickup bay early. Please refrain from gathering in the parking lot before your designated pickup time.

-Customers assume all responsibility for plant health once your order is delivered to the pickup area. For now, we will require a 48 hour notice to reschedule your pickup time. If you are late to pick up your plants or do not make it on your pre-arranged day; PHA is not responsible for any wilt, theft, or other damage done to plants.  

We thank you for your support during this unprecedented time!
