Garden Club visits Ruby Mize Azalea Garden
By Jan White
NACOGDOCHES – On Thursday, March 2, the Crockett Garden Club traveled to Nacogdoches to tour the Ruby Mize Gardens. The 11-acre park, established in 1997, consists of miles of winding trails created to show off over seven thousand azaleas, along with camellias, Japanese maples, and other flowering plants and shrubs.
For those considering visiting the gardens, there is no entry fee. Guided tours are available, but for adventurers who want to strike out on their own, signs throughout the area describe the featured plants and design elements used in the garden beds.
The azalea garden is located south of the Johnson Coliseum on University Drive. Azalea season is from late March to early April, but many of the trees and shrubs are already in bloom, so make your plans accordingly so that you don’t miss out on this gorgeous display of nature.
