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. 




The Piedmont Physic Garden is passionate about educating and promoting  ornamental horticulture as well as educating our community on the impact that plants have on our daily lives. We offer workshops, internships and garden tours for groups such as schools, garden clubs and civic associations in the spring and summer seasons.




From garden parties and community celebrations to private tours and workshops,  there is always something happening at the Piedmont Physic Garden.  Check out our events section for details of all our upcoming educational programs as well as the Environmental Art and Music Festival,  a community vibrancy initiative that celebrates Union County's natural beauty.




This is your source for the latest news from the Piedmont Physic Garden.  We post about upcoming and recent events as well as the cool plants and animals that make their home in the garden. Stay tuned for our exciting plans for our new amphitheater as well as our topiary garden along the Church Street corridor.




As a non-profit organization, the Piedmont Physic Garden relies on the support of our community.  Please consider donating your time, funds, or expertise to help support us as we continue to grow and provide a beautiful place for the community to experience and celebrate our natural environment.
