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.
The JC Raulston Arboretum provides incredible hands-on opportunities for students of all ages. Your support keeps us relevant. Improving and maintaining our facilities is vital to ensuring we remain the South’s leading teaching garden. Please consider investing in the items we need most.
