About the tour.

Early Winter Interest Plants

We are just now starting with what is debatably the most beautiful time in the woodland garden and surrounding areas. Though many think of the garden in winter as leafless and bland, it really doesn’t need to be that way if you seek out the proper plants that are in flower this time of year, have attractive fruits, and late autumn foliage that, in our area, can occur as late as February on some species. Other deciduous trees have attractive bark or branching structure that is best appreciated when leafless. Many of our Camellias and Asian and Mexican Mahonia species are in full flower along with our first of the deciduous Magnolias and flowering apricots (Prunus mume) plus many other surprises appearing by the day. As always with the Insiders’ Tours, we will be visiting portions of the garden never covered on our general Open Day tours so expect to see many additional interesting plants in the collections.


Unlike our general Open Day tours, Director of Horticulture Adam Black or a knowledgeable docent will highlight a more focused subject each month, ranging from Peckerwood’s specific plant groups, garden design strategies, seasonal interest and more. Attendees will often get the rare opportunity to see sections of the garden never visited during the general tours. The goal is to deepen your understanding and appreciation of Peckerwood’s unique collections and their use in the landscape to spark inspiration for your own garden.

January 7th topic is early winter interest. Our ever-expanding nursery will be open for purchases following the tour.

Pre-register for your special visit to Peckerwood Garden.

Tours are approximately 1 ½ hours long. Most tours are limited to 15 people (unless otherwise specified) so pre-registration is required.

Peckerwood Garden has been widely acclaimed for design originality, the breadth of its collections, and its education and conservation programs. Learning about these collections is an ongoing process and an excellent opportunity to deepen your knowledge of plants, design, Peckerwood Garden, and more.

Members, please call 979-826-3232 or email EventRegistration@peckerwoodgarden.org for reservations.

Unfortunately, baby strollers and pets are not allowed in the garden due to the delicate and sharp plants and small uneven pathways. Service animals with identification are allowed. Garden entry is by guided tour only.


Tours are $15 per person, space available. Members are free. Pre-registration is required.
