The Mother’s Day crescendo of white, coral, pink, and purple azalea blossoms is one of the Garden’s most striking seasonal spectacles. Set amongst the dramatic rock outcrops, steep slopes and dappled shade of centuries-old native trees, this garden is beautiful throughout the seasons with plants in bloom nearly every day of the year. Alongside the azaleas and rhododendron, you’ll find a diverse assortment of flowering trees and shrubs, woodland perennials, bulbs, ferns and grasses. Collections in this garden include dogwood, mountain laurel, hydrangea, spice-bush, witch-hazel, epimedium, hosta, hellebore, snow-drop, and ferns.
The Azalea Garden is a project of Mr. and Mrs. Richard L. Chilton, Jr.
