"Our 400 acre cove is a microcosm of the wonderful plants and terrain of the Southern Appalachians. The Arboretum/garden occupies about 5 acres and has a vast number of plants ready for perusal. There are 30' high rhododendrons, now 50 years old, along with the native rhododendrons which cover the hillsides. One plant or another is in bloom year-round, offering food for bees, butterflies, and birds. In addition to the gardens and mountainside, we have several greenhouses with a multitude of plants from young to mature."
