Arboretum artists have been busy for months creating stunning wreaths and dried flower works of art for this sale.

This is the only collection you will find that draws upon the Arboretum’s rare and extraordinary succulents and dried plants.

Wreaths will be available in a wide range of styles, from traditional to one-of-a kind creations. Succulent and dried flower-topped pumpkins are also unique! These are the perfect decorations and centerpieces to last you thru the holidays.
