Just seven minutes from Olympus Fenwick is the stunning Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens.
Spanning fifty-one acres, the gardens' collection began around 1890 when the property owner planted three Japanese timber bamboo plants.
By 1915, the bamboo plants were thriving, and today guests can explore a bamboo maze as well as a variety of gardens such as:
Dwarf Palmetto and Palm Collections
This is the largest outdoor palm collection north of Florida, and it features several species of cold-hardy palms.
The Water Garden features a nine-foot waterfall and shallow bog basin. Both hardy and tropical waterlilies fill the pools and flower from March until late December.
Woodland Shade Garden
Nestled around freshwater lakes, the Woodland Shade Garden is a habitat for native trees and wildflowers. Visitors also see an impressive collection of azaleas such as the Southern Indica and Glenn Dale varieties.
The White Garden offers picturesque vista views, and it showcases seasonal flowers from white-flowering to silvery-white foliage plants. Highlights include iceberg roses, Chinese snowballs, and Chinese fringe trees.
Judge Arthur Solomon Camellia Trail
This wooded garden was planted in 2002, and it continues to grow in size. Peak flowering occurs from October through March, and as visitors explore, they see one of the most diverse collections of camellias in North America.
