NC Botanical Gardens

Before we left Chapel Hill, we stopped at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens.

Their carnivorous plant collection is known as one of the best in the Southeast. Numerous species of pitcher plants, sundews, and butterworts are found in the southeastern United States as are Venus' flytraps.

Every fall the display gardens at the North Carolina Botanical Garden sprout a crop of unique creations by North Carolina artists. A group of one-of-a kind sculptures placed amid the native wildflowers and shrubs delight garden visitors for two months.
