Our 2nd Annual Carolina Moonlight Gala was held May 18, 2013. Under a waxing Carolina Moon, amid the beautiful plant collections surrounding our LEED Platinum-certified Education Center, friends enjoyed delectable food and drink, dancing to live music, an amazing live auction, and a grand finale to an online auction.

A Note About the Name and the Logo:

Our gala is named after a plant, of course!


The beautiful horticultural selection Baptisia X 'Carolina Moonlight' was selected at the North Carolina Botanical Garden by Rob Gardner in 2002. It is a cross between two of our native Baptisia species: white wild indigo (Baptisia alba) and the yellow wild indigo (Baptisia sphaerocarpa). This gorgeous hybrid well represents the Garden's significant contribution to native plant introductions and is a perfect symbol for our annual gala celebration. The logo design, top of this page, is by Sandra Brooks-Mathers, Cricket Taylor and Lynn Goodpasture.
