I was looking for a particular iris that they didn't have. They have loads of other flowers, plants and shrubs. Wish I had more time to explore.

This was just a stop on a very beautiful drive on a autumn weekend at the peek of colors. Staying in a North Carolina country cabin in this gorgeous area. The near by Blue Ridge Parkway was our window to non-stop spectacular mountain scenery.

I don't really know, we were there in the morning around 9 am, there was staff there but not many people. We drove by again on our way back home and there were several cars there. Sorry, you might go online or phone.
