Charlotte Botanical Gardens are located at the University of North Carolina.

The 4000 sq ft McMillan Greenhouse contains five environments: American and African deserts; orchids, bromeliads, ferns, African violet relatives, and other tropical plants; Cymbidium and Dendrobium orchids; carnivorous pitcher plants, sundews, and Venus Flytraps native to the southeastern United States; tropical regions of both the Old and New Worlds.

The 3-acre Susie Harwood Garden displays dwarf conifers, Japanese maples, viburnum, and azaleas, plus other trees, shrubs, vines, annuals, perennials, bulbs, succulents, and water plants from around the world, with an Asian-style gazebo, arched bridges, and a moon gate.

Begun in 1966, the Ralph Van Landingham Glen now contains a major collection (3500 plants) of rhododendron and azalea shrubs, as well as more than 900 species of indigenous trees, shrubs, and wildflowers, and more than 50 species of ferns.
