Tryon Palace features 16 acres of gardens, designed by noted landscape architect Morley Jeffers Williams in the 1950s, which represent the formal garden style of 18th-century Britain. In the fall, the Carraway Garden’s elaborate displays of mums are not to be missed. In the spring, daffodils, tulips, and other colorful flowers dot the landscape. In addition, Colonial-era arrangements, a Kitchen Garden, Victorian-style gardens, and more are open for exploration throughout the year.
