Founded in 2014, the Piedmont Physic Garden is an independent, unaffiliated horticultural institution in Union, South Carolina, only one block from Union's historic Main Street. Our botanical garden is home to our expanding collection of ornamental plants and those with historical medicinal uses, many hailing from the Piedmont and Southern Appalachian corridor. Come discover the beauty and wonder of nature in our garden in Upstate South Carolina.
As a botanical garden, the Piedmont Physic Garden exhibits and promotes our growing collection of ornamental and medicinal plants throughout our garden campus. Our mission is not only to celebrate the beauty of plants but also to educate the public about their usefulness in our daily lives.
