Leonard J. Buck Garden is one of the premier rock gardens in the eastern United States consisting of a series of alpine and woodland garden areas situated in a 29-acre wooded stream valley. Buck Garden is in a naturalistic setting incorporating large rock outcroppings creating varying exposures and microclimates that enable different plant associations to thrive. Tucked among the rocks are rare and exotic rock garden plants. Throughout the garden grow various ferns, and the wooded trails connecting the outcroppings are lined with beautiful wild flowers that have flourished and multiplied through the years.
