The breadth of this magnificent place stands before you..

The Live Oak Allée is comprised of 250 year-old Live Oak trees that were planted in the early 1700s when today's Brookgreen Gardens was four thriving rice plantations.

The four wings of the butterfly garden offer many horticultural surprises and delights as you move deeper into the Huntington Sculpture Garden.

The most notable are the Dorothy P. Peace Garden Room for Children located in the lower right wing and the Kitchen Garden found in the lower left wing. The Brenda W. Rosen Carolina Terrace Garden has a spectacular array of perennials, roses, shrubs and mature trees.

Three additional major gardens departed from the butterfly design with the focus on a formality not seen up to this point in the Gardens.

The Palmetto Garden, named for the use of Sabal palmetto, South Carolina's state tree, was completed in 1950. The whimsical Fountain of the Muses Garden, displays the sculpture of the same name and takes bold garden design to new heights.
