Allen DeHart Botanical Garden

Sponsored by the Margaret Reid chapter

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Dr. Allen DeHart generously guided our tour of the DeHart Botanical Garden off Route 410 near Louisburg.  Dr. DeHart created the garden and in his early nineties continues to direct its care and improvement. The garden is best known for its spring displays of azaleas, exotic and native, and other spring flowers, but it was perhaps more interesting to our group of native plants enthusiasts on a lovely fall day.  No bright magentas or pinks to distract us.
