William Paca Garden Plant Sale

1 Martin Street, Annapolis

A tradition for over 40 years, the William Paca Garden Plant Sale provides the opportunity to take home a piece of history.

This year, you’ll find perennial offerings focused on native flowers, like white turtlehead, Virginia bluebells, and bleeding heart. Hostas and woodland phlox complement the shady garden, while sunny spaces shine with annuals like cockscomb, salvia, and zinnias. Bring drama to your fence...
