Gorgeous greens, holiday accents, and long-lasting wreaths are all available at the Holiday Greens Sale. Entrance is free and the public is welcome!

Finished wreaths designed by the talented and experienced volunteers and staff at the Scott Arboretum will also be available for purchase. Our wreaths are fresh and have been created using damp sphagnum moss. This technique has been selected to ensure a long-lasting wreath.
