Azalea, Garvan Woodland Gardens, Hot Springs, Arkansas, April 13, 2010

We’ve visited Garvan Woodland Gardens twice in the last 5 years.

Garvan Woodland Gardens is a 210-acre (850,000 m²) botanical garden located at 550 Arkridge Road approximately 6 miles from Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA. It is owned by the University of Arkansas and open every day (except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and the month of January) for a fee.

The Gardens are situated on a woodland peninsula with 4.5 miles (7 km) of shoreline on Lake Hamilton. The Gardens feature rocky inclines reminiscent of the surrounding Ouachita Mountains, floral landscapes, streams, and waterfalls in a natural woodland setting, plus a Japanese Garden with Japanese maples and tree peonies, a conifer border, and various flower and rock gardens. Its collections display hundreds of rare shrubs and trees, including camellias, magnolias, roses, and over 160 different types of azaleas.  (Wikipedia)
