Enjoy the beautiful flowers, great food and delightful surroundings in The Gardens of Sunshine Hollow! Call or email the gardens for more information. Here at the Gardens of Sunshine Hollow we are continuing to strive for excellence and to make the Gardens a more beautiful place to visit each year. A series of trails lead through many acres of terraced garden beds and surrounding forest. The new Azalea Trail travels over two miles through the interior of the Hollow where you can see thousands of wild Azaleas in bloom in the spring. In our Sun Gardens over fifteen hundred varieties of daylilies, dahlias, roses, Cannas and Iris are displayed along 3000 feet of flower beds. There are also hundreds of hanging baskets and planters. These are mingled with other perennials, annuals and shrubs such as Azaleas, Rhododendron and Japanese Maples. See new and different Perennials and Annuals along with trellises of exotic flowering vines. The Margaret Whitehead Rhyne Shade Garden surrounds our pavilion and incorporates over 100 varieties of Hosta as well as many native and introduced ferns, annuals, and perennials. The Hosta display continues along a nature trail. The trail follows a beautiful creek that travels the length of the Hollow for one half mile displaying over 250 varieties of Hosta plus other perennials, annuals and shrubs. It ends at the display gardens near the entrance to Sunshine Hollow where you may take the Azalea trail back to the main Garden.
