Exhibits and Sculpture in the Garden
There are many ways to explore and learn about the natural world. We regularly host exhibits that help to interpret the natural world of which we are a part or that represent an artist's view of nature.

Plant This, Not That!
...through June 30, 2017
North Carolina’s native plant species have had thousands of years to adapt to our climate,giving them the ability to thrive here. Unfortunately, many commonly used ornamental plants are non-native and even invasive. Invasive plants threaten the biodiversity of our area by stealing the scarce resources other plants need to survive. Luckily,this exhibit makes it easy to incorporate native plants into your yard by planting this, not that.
We also have the Wildflowers of the Year quilts on display. These quilts were donated by the Durham-Orange Quilters' Guild and include the 2016 North Carolina Wildflower of the Year, Rattlesnake Master.

Every fall the Garden hosts one of the Triangle’s most anticipated art events, a juried outdoor exhibition of exciting sculptures by North Carolina artists.
