If These Trees Could Talk
You see it. You feel it. Spanish moss grows on historic live oaks, swaying gently in the coastal breeze. And if you listen closely, you might even hear the whispers of over 300 years of history, beauty, and grace. The iconic Avenue of Oaks at Boone Hall Plantation transports you back in time to an era gone, but not forgotten.
“America’s Most Photographed Plantation”
Boone Hall is one of the South’s greatest treasures and has earned the reputation as “America’s Most Photographed Plantation” – a place NBC Daytime Television says is a “must see” on any trip to Charleston.”
Visitors can tour the plantation home, take in the critically acclaimed Black History In America exhibit on display in original slave cabins, experience the unique Lowcountry Gullah culture through one-of-a-kind live presentations, enjoy a plantation tractor tour across the entire 738 acres, and of course, see the diverse gardens which are a showcase of color throughout the year.
No Stranger To Hollywood
Boone Hall is a frequent location for filming numerous movies and television shows including the romantic favorite The Notebook, the legendary TV miniseries North and South, American Idol, and others.
The plantation is the home of a number of high-profile special events throughout the year and is also one of the Charleston area’s most popular wedding venues.
What Makes This Garden Unique:
- The garden at Boone Hall was uniquely designed in the elegant shape of gossamer wings outlined with brick pathways and enclosed with a lush boxwood hedge along the perimeter that surrounds the gardens. The half closer to the house is filled with a collection of camellias that are shaded by sweeping, white Crepe Myrtle Trees.
- Further out, you will find a virtual museum containing an unequaled collection of antique roses mixed delightfully with hardy perennials and annuals.
- We are constantly planting selections that complement the antique rose collection and can survive the hot, humid summers and unpredictable but moderate winters. It is an ever-evolving creation of color and texture on which to feast the eyes.
- As you walk from the house toward the massive shady Avenue of Oaks, this garden presents itself as small vignettes and personal spaces with complementing colors drawing you from one bed to the next. It starts with light colors of pastels and whites that lead to bold, hot hues of orange, reds, and blues.
- Each side hosts seven pillars supporting a variety of native climbing roses that add a vertical accent along with groupings of Vitex trees and flanking Forest Red Pansy trees in deep colors of wine and purple.
