Shop for Plants Grown at Mount Vernon

The cooler fall weather makes it a great time to plant perennials, trees, and shrubs!

In addition to heirloom plants, we sell many plants native to our region that are beautiful and support the local insect, bird, and wildlife population.

The General's Choice Plant Line

The exclusive General's Choice line features plants propagated from seeds or cuttings collected from plants growing on George Washington's estate.


The plant sale is located next to our production greenhouses in the Conservation Complex and Volunteer Center (CCVC) parking lot.

Follow the signs to enter the parking lot at the four-way stop intersection of VA 235 (Mount Vernon Memorial Highway) and the George Washington Memorial Parkway. Look for the balloons to help mark the turn from VA 235 and the entrance to the parking lot.

Drive to the CCVC gate (G6 on the map). As you drive through the gate, stay to the right and follow the signs and arrows into the parking lot. Park in the CCVC parking lot (P6 on the map) and walk to the plant sale area, which will be set up in front of the entrance to the volunteer center (11 on the map).
