Collection Name: NCBG - Piedmont Habitat
Collection Description: This garden was once Laurel Hill Road! Now it is a series of beds that display plant communities of the Piedmont with a focus on the plants that prefer sunny sites. You will see roadside wildflowers, a representation of a diabase glade featuring a number of rare plants, and a collection of old farm implements that remind us of the impact that the Piedmont's agricultural history has had on the landscape. There are things to see in this collection year round, but summer and fall are the best times to take in the perennials and grasses that dominate the Piedmont habitat.
