Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

Congratulations! We are so excited that you are engaged and beginning this new chapter of your lives. Southern hospitality means making our guests feel at home. Whether you are from the Lowcountry or planning a destination wedding in Charleston, your guests will feel at home when you invite them to Magnolia Plantation to celebrate with you. Rooted in rich history and the deep culture of the South, Magnolia Plantation dates back to1676 when the Drayton family called Magnolia home. In 1870 they extended an invitation to visitors to experience the myriad of beautiful flowers in their famous romantic gardens. Today, at nearly 500 acres and with the distinction of being America’s oldest public gardens, we extend the same gracious hospitality as the Drayton family did in the past to make your guests feel welcomed on your wedding day. 

In the Spring time you will find our gardens filled with colorful azaleas and wisteria. During the warmer months of summer, vibrant crepe myrtle, hydrangeas, and our iconic magnolias fill the property. Fall brings an encore season of azaleas, Morning glory, and the beginning of camellias. Throughout the winter months, our historic gardens how case America's largest collection of camellias. We invite you to come experience the property and be swept away in the romance and beauty of our historical gardens.
