Winghaven is set on three acres enclosed by brick walls in the heart of Charlotte’s Myers Park neighborhood. The gardens were created in 1927 by Elizabeth and Edwin Clarkson to provide plantings for the birds that Elizabeth Clarkson loved. The gardens consist of formal gardens with pathways and woodland areas. The gardens provide nesting sites, cover, food and water for the many birds that make their homes there.
April is a special month at Winghaven. The annual plant sale takes place April 18th-21st. It’s a great place to find native plants, unusual shrubs, perennials, groundcovers and antique roses. There will also be a selection of tools and gifts available during the sale.
Educational events are also available during the plant sale days. There is no charge for these programs but advance registration is required.
