The Piedmont Physic Garden is an independent, unaffiliated horticultural institution in Union, South Carolina. Our botanical garden is home to our expanding collection of ornamental plants as well as to plants with historical medicinal uses, many hailing from the Piedmont and Southern Appalachian corridor. Although we do not have regular business hours, we are scheduling tours for individuals and groups during the spring and summer seasons. Click on the green circle (see above) to make an appointment to visit the garden. We look forward to seeing you!
Due to the rise of COVID -19 cases in the Upstate of South Carolina, PPG has decided to postpone our educational programs until further notice. The Piedmont Physic Garden is passionate about exhibiting and promoting ornamental horticulture as well as educating our community on the positive impact that plants have on our daily lives. We offer workshops, internships and garden tours for individuals and groups such as schools, garden clubs, church groups, summer camps, civic associations etc. during the spring and summer seasons. Contact us today to arrange your visit!
From garden parties and community celebrations to private tours and workshops, there is always something happening at the Piedmont Physic Garden. Although we have modified our event offerings due to COVID-19, we are hosting our Flora Friday Open Houses from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on July 9th, 16th and 23rd. Join us for games, garden tours, arts and crafts, refreshments and drawings for prizes! Also, stay tuned for info about our next Environmental Art and Music Festival, a community vibrancy initiative that celebrates Union County's natural beauty.
