Visitors can stroll through the Rose Garden, which is home to 40 varieties — including the coral Rosalynn Carter rose — or view the serene Japanese garden, designed by Master Gardener Kinsaku Nakane.
Entry Gardens
The terraced overlook to the Jimmy Carter Library is bordered by colorful beds and an engaging fountain. Plants of interest include star magnolias, Japanese maples, Foster’s hollies, and leatherleaf mahonia.
Rose Garden
The serene rose garden is home to more than 40 varieties, including the coral Rosalynn Carter, pink Queen Elizabeth, red and white Snow Fire, red Rotary, pink and yellow Peace, lavender Lady X, and Blue Girl. "Sightless Among Miracles" This striking sculpture, donated by John and Rebecca Moores, depicts a child leading a blind man, a sight often seen in countries whose populations are vulnerable to river blindness disease. The Carter Center has led efforts to control, or eliminate, this disease.
Japanese Garden
Designed by Japanese Master Gardener Kinsaku Nakane and donated by the YKK Corporation, the garden contains many species of azaleas, rhododendrons, Japanese maples, river birch, golden raintree, camellia, and barberry. The large waterfall represents former President Jimmy Carter and the small waterfall Rosalynn Carter.
Native Oak Forest
This 3-acre undisturbed natural area on our property. It offers interesting views of our Japanese Garden across the lower lake. The floor of this area consists of black locust trees and many wildflowers. Picnic tables provide a relaxing outdoor eating place for visitors.
Cut Flower Gardens
Featuring a variety of bulbs, containergrown perennials, and annuals — including hibiscus, gladiolas, butterfly bushes, and oak leaf hydrangea — thrive in this area. With the Rose Garden, these plants are the source of flowers for arrangements used in offices and the reception area of The Carter Center and for the many social events and meetings that take place here.
