We’re beyond excited about this event, and can’t wait to see you there! Here’s a bit of what to expect:


The Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival, held in various locations throughout Douglas County, will feature several display gardens (some with free admission, others with a fee), a garden tour, a celebrity speaker, a festival market, and a flower show. The event celebrates the life of Penny McHenry, the founder of the American Hydrangea Society, as well as the beautiful shrub itself that marks so many Georgia summers with it’s gorgeous blooms.

While at the festival, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the beautiful garden displays, showcasing various placements of hydrangeas in containers, in beds, and more, along with purchasing items for your own home garden while talking to industry professionals for a few know-how tips and tricks.
