Daniel Boone Native Gardens


Located in Boone, North Carolina, the Daniel Boone Native Gardens were opened in 1963 to nurture rare or endangered plant species. The three acres, which are maintained by the Garden Club of North Carolina, include a bog garden, fern garden, rhododendron grove, rock garden, wishing well, and a pond alongside the Squire Boone Cabin.


The garden is open daily May through October from dawn to dusk. Admission is $2.00 per person.

    1. It certainly can be tough to visit all of these great places. I've sorted them by state in my pages section, so you can peruse them when you do have time to visit.

  6. Hi Sherry - it looks an interesting smaller garden, so one can concentrate on the particular sections ... and reasonably cheap too - cheers Hilary
