Welcome

The JC Raulston Arboretum is a nationally acclaimed garden with one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants adapted for landscape use in the Southeast. Plants especially adapted to Piedmont North Carolina conditions are collected and evaluated in an effort to find superior plants for use in southern landscapes.

Plant Sale Buggy

Check out the Arboretum's Plant Sale Buggy when you visit. Located outside the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center, it’s a great spot to find choice and unusual plants for your garden. New plants are added throughout the week, and payments can be made using cash (no change available), checks, or credit cards.
