Leonard J. Buck Garden is one of the premier rock gardens in the eastern United States.
Begun in the late 1930's, the garden has reached a point of full maturity. It consists of a series of alpine and woodland gardens situated in a 33-acre wooded stream valley.
Tucked among the rocks are rare and exotic rock garden plants. The wooded trails connecting the outcroppings are lined with beautiful wild flowers that have flourished and multiplied through the years. Throughout the gardens grow various ferns. At the base of the valley walls, azaleas and rhododendrons produce a colorful display in May and early June.
