"Sharing The World of Plants With People"
We are a university botanical garden promoting the knowledge and appreciation of plants for educational, environmental, and aesthetic purposes. We are open to the public and welcome visitors.
The Botanical Gardens consist of three main areas - the McMillan Greenhouse complex, the 3-acre Susie Harwood Garden, and the 7-acre Van Landingham Glen. The three areas are located together, on the east side of the UNC Charlotte campus. Each garden has something unique to offer - from the orchids, desert plants, carnivorous plants, and tropical wonders of the greenhouse... to the native wildflowers, trees, and rhododendrons in the peaceful setting of the Glen... to the intimate, artful settings in the Harwood Garden including the Winter garden, Asian garden, Water Garden, and much rockwork throughout.
