The McGill Rose Garden
Posted by Daricia McKnight
Over the next three decades, she would plant a few more—dozens more. Now the McGill Rose Garden—between the Garden District of First Ward, and NoDa, Charlotte's historic arts district—is an All-America Rose Selections (AARS) public garden.
Nectar, where dozens of orchid flowers floated in a huge fishbowl and fern bedecked steps led into a courtyard asparkle with mirrors dangling from the oak trees. From there you can see a Seaboard Coastline coal car still on the tracks at the back of the garden.
