Nice, but small area with a small amount of the flowering shrubs. A bit disappointing, but then, we come from the City of Roses, where a huge acreage abounds with Rhododendrons and Azaleas topping out at 30' tall tress, along with the lower shrub varieties.

This place is phenomenal for anyone that loves flowers and nature. The mood is very calm and zen. This is also a great place for family photographer which means that many times it's crowded by photographers and clients. I haven't seen many actually go into...More

We brought a group (14 maximum) to do a tour of WRAL-TV Studios and the garden. The gardens are beautiful and an added bonus! There are a few spots where footing could be shaky, but it is worth the trip.

This tiny garden is right next to the television station and is a small but lovely floral space. We visited in September so the flowers were on the decline but it was a shady spot and had nice landscaping.
