The Botanical Gardens at Asheville NC

On a Spring walk through The Botanical Gardens at Asheville, our camera caught the sunny mood and lazy day feeling of the gardens which hold native North Carolina plants that include flowering Redbuds, Hemlocks, large leaf Rhododendrons, scenic stone walls and the natural beauty of rock-lined creeks.

Grow Native!

Grow Native!

The Southern Appalachians have the richest diversity of native plants anywhere outside of the tropics. Abundant rainfall, a range of elevation, and variety of soils all contribute to the dazzling variety of native species. These are plants that have lived here for thousands of years and were not introduced by people.

Growing natives helps sustain and maintain the diversity of our mountain ecosystem. Whether you live in the city, in the woods, or on a farm, you can grow natives. Diverse in number, design, and color, native plants are a key part of our rich, natural heritage, like a patchwork quilt passed down for generations.
