Fodor's Review

More than 9 acres of perennials and woody plants are cultivated here, among dozens of fountains and pools. Twenty-five distinct gardens showcase a variety of themes, such as native wildflowers in the Cissy Wise Wildflower Meadow, 350 rose plants at the Jessie Wooldridge Brosius Rose Garden, and a living-herb wall at the Sally Stone Sensory Garden. A highlight is the 2,800-square-foot free-flight butterfly enclosure that is home to more than 5,000 butterflies in various stages of development; it is open from June to September only. The very interactive children's garden features a tree house to climb into and a pond to hop across.
