Magnificent views of the visitor pavilion include: a children’s garden, a greenhouse dedicated to tropical plants and orchids, a dry Peedmont grassland, annual and perennial herbs, sparkling fountains, sidewalks, etc. We welcome you to our magnificent 110 acre garden.
Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens offers an exhilarating and unforgettable garden experience, cultivating a love of nature and its beauty.
Daniel J. Stowe retired from a textile company in Belmont, North Carolina in 1991 and gained 380 acres of the best grassland, forest and lake land, setting the stage for the development of a global botanical garden. Stowe and his wife Alene are lifelong nature lovers and horticulturists and envision buildings built for decades to be comparable to other world-famous gardens.
Overlooking the garden is a 13,500-square-foot visitor pavilion with an impressive 100-year-old stained glass dome. The pavilion was inaugurated in 1999 and has 8 garden rooms and 12 fountains. The Orchid Music Academy opened in 2008, followed by “The Lost Valley”. In 2014 the “Kimberly-Clark Children’s Garden” was opened. In 2019, Piedmont Prairie Garden will open to commemorate the 20th anniversary.
