Beautiful South Carolina

Charlotte Botanical Gardens, a free family outdoor delight year around

Posted By ShoutCarolina,Date: 05.21.2012

One of Charlotte’s best kept secrets is the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Indoor is the McMillan Greenhouse with some of the weirdest plants you’ll ever see. Outdoor are the Susie Harwood winter garden and the Van Landingham Glen native plants garden. Admission is free.

Here are our favorite moments from the outdoor winter garden featuring flowering and fragrant plants from Asia.
