Holly Garden And Turner Sculpture Garden

The Holly Garden, established in the 1950’s by the Lakewood Garden Club of Norfolk, is a 3-acre display of evergreen hollies set in garden “rooms.” More than 20 different types of American and Asiatic hollies and a dozen different English hollies are grouped by geographic regions. Hybrids developed from these hollies are also planted here. The garden contains 121 varieties of hollies. The sparkling red, orange and green berries of the Holly Garden provide especially beautiful displays in NBG’s winter landscape.

Local wildlife is captured in bronze sculptures by William and David Turner and are placed throughout the garden.
