EVENT IS SOLD OUT

Ganna Walska Lotusland is thrilled to announce the tenth anniversary of our Exceptional Plants Auction and Sale to be held in the Lotusland gardens on Saturday, October 9th from 1:30pm to 5:30pm. 

Lotusland’s Exceptional Plants Auction & Sale offers a wonderful afternoon at Lotusland with wine, beer, botanical-inspired cocktails curated by Plant Haven, sumptuous hors d’oeuvres, and rare plants galore. Affectionately known as the “Ultimate Plant Party”, Exceptional Plants is the only event of its kind in Southern California, welcoming garden connoisseurs, serious collectors and design professionals. It is a great opportunity to enjoy the Garden and a lively afternoon of appetizers, botanical cocktails, and camaraderie with other plant enthusiasts. 

Lotusland has been named one of the top ten private gardens in the world, and was voted one of the best botanic gardens in the Country by USA Today in their readers’ poll. It is well known in the community for its dedication to conservationism, education, and stewardship of its unique, specimen-filled Montecito estate. 

We invite you to partner with Lotusland at this spectacular event. We respectfully request you make your sponsorship commitment by September 24, 2021 to help support these exceptional botanical treasures.
