Welcome to the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens. We invite you to enter a variety of gardens, including the unique natural environment of the North Carolina Sandhills. Here you will find collections of plants both familiar and unusual, all presented in specially designed landscapes. Whether you visit to indulge your botanical interest, to learn more about the Sandhills, or to enjoy a stroll through our enchanting gardens, you will be enriched by the experience.
in 1978, the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens became a reality with the establishment of the Ebersole Holly Garden. Over the years, additional gardens have been implemented, including the Rose Garden, the Conifer Garden, the Sir Walter Raleigh Garden, the Atkins Hillside Garden, the Fruit & Vegetable Garden, Hackley Woodland Garden, Ambrose Japanese Garden and the Desmond Native Wetland Trail Garden. Today, the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens cover twenty-seven acres. They are open to the public every day of the year from dawn to sunset and offer as educational adventure to anyone with an interest in plants, nature, and design composition.
