This NJ guy had a chance to see Atlanta Botanical Gardens on Friday. What a great experience, and what a great time to be there!! The outside Sarracenia gardens were in full bloom! Inside they had lots of great Nepenthes. It was the first time I have ever seen Heliamphors in person and they looked great. Also there was a back greenhouse with all different kinds of Sarracenia inside, used for breeding and Conservation. Tried to get one of the women working there to give me a "behind the scenes" Sarracenia tour, but they were quite busy.
It was a great time to see the botanical gardens...large trees of Chionanthus, Styrax japonica, plus the native azaleas were in full bloom. Wow!! I got there first thing in the morning, but unfortuanately only had about 2 hours to explore.
