Gardens on the North Carolina Coast
Visit the North Carolina coast to explore manicured formal gardens, see masses of brightly blooming azaleas and learn about botanical treasures such as the rare Venus flytrap. It’s easy to cultivate the light, sandy, and the climate is tempered by the Gulf Stream for a lengthy growing season. It’s not hard to see why the earliest settlers were eager to make our shores their home.
