“Small, unique and worth seeing. It's free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

We visited here as part of a 7 garden tour through North Carolina and Virginia. It is not listed as a GEM in the AAA Tourbook but it is definitely worth seeing especially since it is free. There is a new LEEDS platinum building that is unique as well as an excellent herb garden. There are also some plants for sale.

“The theme is NC flora - and it's free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2009

The uniqueness of this arboretum is that it focuses on flora of the various regions of NC. This is unlike the other 2 aboretums in the area which are more typical international in emphasis -Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh (also free) and Sara Duke Gardens in Durham (free but $2/hr parking).
There is construction on a new educational center. Parking is limited until construction is completed.
