When Will The Azaleas Bloom?

Now is the time to start planning your visit to the Azalea Path Botanical Garden and Arboretum, because azaleas only bloom for a little while. The folks at the Azalea Path say that beginning April 22, 2023, the blooms will be beautiful. They expect the gardens to be picture-perfect through May 2023.

Respect the Land

A family actually lives on this property. Please keep that in mind when you tour the gardens. They have had some trouble in the past with people climbing on the rocks or causing damage, so there are some rules to follow.

  • Stay out of the water features
  • Leave your pets at home
  • No alcoholic beverages may be brought in
  • Children must be supervised AT ALL TIMES and within arm’s length

Visiting Information

Don't forget to bring cash. I rarely have any when I need it, and you don't want to get all the way out there and then have to turn around. Admission is $5 per person ages 5 and up.
