A showcase for the best of Southern horticulture and a chance to reconnect with nature. The breathtaking pavilion welcomes visitors to 110 acres of spectacular gardens including Lost Hollow children’s garden, a conservatory dedicated to the display of tropical plants and orchids, a Dry Piedmont Prairie, annual and perennial displays, sparkling fountains, walking trails and more. We're located on 380 acres along the banks of Lake Wylie, just west of Charlotte.

The Garden celebrates its 20th anniversary with an awe-inspiring, larger-than-life botanical glass exhibit, Grandiflora: Gamrath Glass at the Garden (May through Sept). Guests will be mesmerized by hundreds of pieces of glass making up dozens of installations by Seattle-based artist Jason Gamrath. Towering 10-foot orchids, vivid pitcher plants, energetic Venus flytraps and more. See website for details and rates.
