Native Azaleas at Carolina Native Nursery
The Gems of the Native Garden
Carolina Native Nursery is known for growing thousands of native azaleas from seed on our large property in beautiful Burnsville, North Carolina.
We think native azaleas should be in everyone’s garden. As far as we are concerned, these plants are truly the gems of our indigenous landscape. Instead of transporting them from roadsides or forest environments, as folks have been doing as long as there are shovels, please leave native plants where they grow. If you are a native azalea enthusiast we have the plants for you.

Our vision is to be the go to resource for native azaleas in the Southeast. We look forward to raising awareness, providing you with beautiful plants, and helping get these plants into gardens, landscapes, and back in nature everywhere.
