Quarry Garden

This native garden contains herbal medicinal plants, the mysterious lost camellia, quiet waterfalls, and what is Georgia’s largest native plant collection in one place—25 feet below grade.

Quarry Garden, Osmunda regalis fiddleheads

This sanctuary for Georgia’s native plants and birds was transformed from a 25-foot-deep former rock quarry. A waterfall cuts through the high walls surrounding the garden, down to a stream and nearby pond below. The towering canopy shades plants once used for medicinal, spiritual, and practical purposes by the Creek/Muskogee people and early settlers.
