Open Garden and Nursery
Visit us every season to learn what plants grow best in our area.
Welcome to the garden
During our Open Garden and Nursery weekends we have horticultural staff available to assist you with finding plants, answer your questions and direct you around the garden as well as free educational programs to help you flourish as a gardener.
Juniper Level Botanic Garden is filled with more than 27,000 taxa of plants, including native perennials, exotic plants, rare delights, and an array of incredible and unusual specimen trees and shrubs you won’t see anywhere else in the world.
We have introduced more than 1250 new plants to commerce since its founding. At any one time, our garden funding division, Plant Delights Nursery sells more than 1,600 different perennials to satisfy even the most jaded gardener. Come to see why keen gardeners from around the world plan their vacations to include a visit to Juniper Level Botanic Garden.
During the Open Nursery and Garden days no visit requests are needed, although it helps us to know if you’ll be bringing a large bus group so we can properly reserve the needed parking space. Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
Location and Hours
We are located 20 minutes south of downtown Raleigh in the picturesque community of Juniper Level. Please note our Open House hours are different from our regular hours.
We need your support
Help us preserve the garden for the future generations by donating to the Endowment fund. Tony and Anita Avent executed legal documents with NCSU and the JC Raulston Arboretum in 2016 to gift their entire 28 acre estate to JCRA. Your support today will enable NCSU to continue Tony’s life work unabated.
