About WRAL Azalea Gardens:
The WRAL Gardens showcase a full range of flowering and non-flowering plant materials that are typical in a Southern garden. Featured plants include azaleas, dogwoods, rhododendrons, deciduous azaleas and the beginnings of a new collection of hydrangeas. As green space in the Triangle becomes harder and harder to find, the WRAL Gardens serve as a sanctuary from the clogged city streets, miles of concrete and high rise buildings, and the general hustle and bustle of the rat race.We say the best time to visit is the spring, but don't count it out the rest of the year. You can learn about the flowers that are currently blooming on their website and even get a preview with their Garden Cam.
