The Gardens’ 67.5 acres contains 25 gardens, 30 works of original outdoor sculpture and miles of walking paths. It has the largest public horticulture library in the United States, conservatories, a wildflower garden, two rose gardens, the Southern Living garden, and Japanese Gardens with a traditionally crafted tea house.
