Was a nice way to spend a couple of hours - a beautiful walk, took pictures of some of the plants to see if I can grow them myself - foxtail ferns, Sour Oranges. Want to come back in spring to see what blooms.

I would recommend the Gardens to any garden enthusiast that is visiting Savannah. In the fall, the Camellia Garden is truly extraordinary. I was there recently when the Iris Garden was blooming and it was incredible. Highly recommend!

Yes, the azaleas and camellias had already bloomed, but there were gorgeous fields of irises to see, and -- best -- the trial garden, replanted to reproduce what early English settlers had worked to grow, is filled with fascinating tidbits of information. Orchid house not...More

Exit 94 off I 95, Route 204 East is just about anything you want. Marriott, Days Inn, Sleep Inn, Howard Johnsons and more. We have eaten at that Perkins before, it's pretty good.
