  • Girlfriend trip for second year in a row. Watch their Facebook site for when the Azaleas are expected to be blooming. We love to walk the paths seeing all the azaleas, dogwoods and other spring...  more »
  • This little gem is just a 20 minute drive from Petersburg, IN. Petersburg is a very small town but has a nice grocery store, a Subway, 3 convenience store/gas stations, and some nice little locally...  more »
  • It is a magical place when azaleas are blooming. Very much worth visiting. However, if coming from the north on I69 do NOT follow Google maps directions for the last bit of the route. Once you are on SR 65, do not turn left on Co. Rd 775 (this leads you to Rd 150N that is a very steep gravel road, barely passable in a passenger car). Instead stay on SR 65 and then turn left on Co. Rd 825. The gardens are on that road, on the left. There is a sign for the gardens on the corner of SR 65 and Co. Rd 825.
  • Family enjoyed this immensely! This is a rare gem in Southern IN. Remember to be kind, polite and respect the hosts rules. This is private property that has been generously opened to share with the public. Don’t ruin it for everyone else! Also, bring cash, as they don’t accept credit cards.
