The Hardy Plant Society of Oregon's Plant & Garden Art Sale

2021 - HORTLANDIA'S 33rd Year!
Tentative Date: June 26, 2021

This event is open to both HPSO members and non-members.

In April of 'normal' years, HPSO sponsors an event that is one of the largest of its kind in the Pacific Northwest.  Vendors from far and wide – from nearly the Canadian border to the California border – come to Portland to offer the latest plant introductions as well as the time-tested (and hardiness-tested!) plants. Complementing the plant vendors are specialty garden art vendors bringing one-of-a-kind pieces made from metal, wood, glass, ceramic, fabric, and stone.  Each work of art is handcrafted by the vendor.  This is a wonderful event, and it's particularly nice to have so many nurseries and artists, with so many plant choices and specialty works, all under one roof!

In 2020, we created a virtual Hortlandia with pandemic shopping and contact information for the Hortlandia vendors.  Many of our longstanding nursery partners also took time to give us insights into their history and love of horticulture.

Now it’s almost a year later. Much like the rest of the world, we are now looking at a 2021 where large-scale events are not yet a safe bet.  However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  Vaccines are starting to get out.  We remain very hopeful that we will be able to host an outdoor summer version of Hortlandia.  The Hortlandia volunteers are hard at work looking at all the options, venues and possible safety protocols.  Stay tuned!

In recent years, Hortlandia has featured the Grow With Us Lecture Series at the sale.  While we can’t promise lecture programs at a 2021 Hortlandia, we are hoping that our other digital offerings this spring through the Gen(i)us Program and Garden Stories will help to fill your mind with new garden ideas.

This is a typical list of participating nurseries from past Hortlandias:

The next venue is still to be determined.  When our event is held at the Portland Expo center, there is plenty of parking, and the City of Portland charges for parking there.  A few dollars can be saved by carpooling, but be sure to leave enough room to take home some plants and art! The Interstate MAX Yellow Line also goes right to EXPO.
In 2021, we may be holding a "summer" version of Hortlandia.  But if this happens, it will likely be at the Westside Commons (formerly known as the Washington County Fairplex).
