Stroll under the canopy of massive Live Oaks in Savannah’s Historic District, and enjoy beautiful Crape Myrtle flowers in the summer and Camellia blossoms in the winter.

The coastal city’s unique blend of Northern trees and tropical shrubs makes it a gardener’s paradise. Enjoy original tales and folklore pertaining to the history and science of Savannah’s flowers, plants, and trees with licensed tour guide Roy Heizer. More than 160 photographs exhibit flora from the Historic District, squares, the house museum gardens, the Savannah Botanical Garden, Bamboo Farm, and Coastal Gardens.
