University of North Carolina Botanical Gardens

9090 Craver Rd.
Charlotte, NC 28262


We are a university botanical garden promoting the knowledge and appreciation of plants for educational, environmental, and aesthetic purposes. The greenhouse and gardens serve as a resource to the campus community, as well as the greater Charlotte community and its visitors.

Services: The Botanical Gardens offer much more than the plants themselves. Look through the menus above to learn more about our classes and workshops, guided group tours, plant sales, volunteer and membership opportunities,and plant society meetings. We are part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and although the University does not offer a degree in horticulture, the Gardens are utilized by a wide variety of classes– from the plant-related Biology courses taught in the greenhouse classroom to art classes using the plants and gardens as subjects to technical writing and journalism classes centering assignments around our unique environment.
