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

2020 - HORTLANDIA'S 32nd Year!
April 11th & 12th at the Portland EXPO Center

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

Hortlandia 2019In April of every year, 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!

For 2020, Hortlandia is expanding by 33%!!!  With more space to offer specialty vendors, additional nurseries specializing in tender plants and houseplants will now participate in the sale. 

New, faster, express check-out lines will be offered to provide great service to our customers! 

Applications for nurseries, artists, community partners, and other vendors will be available on December 1, 2019.  Check back here.

We are currently organizing the list of presenters for the Grow With Us Lecture Series at the sale.  Here is last year's list:

  • Cory Jarrell: “Houseplant Care with the Plant Nerdist” / 10:30am Saturday
  • Judith Jones: “Ferns Beyond Shady Borders” / 12pm Saturday
  • Riz Reyes: “Plants for Year-Round Flower Arranging” / 1:30pm Saturday
  • Laura Heldreth: “Made in the Shade” / 10:30am Sunday
  • Janis McBride: “The Gift of Orchids” / 12pm Sunday
  • Linda Beutler: “Some Like it Hot - Clematis” / 1:30 Sunday

Volunteers make the sale happen. It takes about 240 volunteers working 3-hour shifts to ensure that the sale goes smoothly. As a benefit for helping out, volunteers get to shop one hour before the general public.

A few things to keep in mind: No pets, wagons, strollers or carts are permitted inside the building. HPSO will make reasonable accommodation or will provide assistance for people with disabilities. Please contact the HPSO office in advance so arrangements can be made, and let one of our Greeters at the entrance know if you require assistance.

A room map and vendor cross-reference list will be available for download by March 1, 2020.

There is plenty of parking in the EXPO Center lot, 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.
