Mediterranean Garden & Orchid Greenhouse


Mediterranean Garden

Situated between the Conference Center and Bridal Cottage (two historic USDA buildings dating to ~1930), the Mediterranean Garden is a semi-formal landscape featuring plants, flower and textures typical of a classic Southern European landscape.



Orchid Greenhouse

Historic USDA Greenhouse #1 (built in the early 1960s) is a showcase for tropical orchids. In partnership with the Deep South Orchid Society, this glasshouse is home to a wide array of orchids being grown among appropriate tropical companion plants.
