The gardens, situated on about 10 acres, were originally started by Dr. Charles G. Vardell, the founder of then Flora Macdonald College. The gardens, always known for the variety of azaleas in the spring, still have many of the original plants gathered by Dr. Vardell. As part of a restoration, many new botanical specimens have been added, along with replacing plants previously lost.
