North Carolina Arboretum

The North Carolina Arboretum is nestled within the Pisgah National Forest near Asheville. The 434-acre site is divided between an arboretum and a botanical garden. The current incarnation of the site opened in the late 1980s. The Blue Ridge Quilt Garden is a colorful parterre that pays homage to the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. The Arboretum also displays the National Native Azalea Repository, which contains every type of azalea native to the US.
