1. Wildflower Trail Marker
Inscription. A desire to restore land eroded by years of cotton farming and a wish to protect the rare and beautiful Plumleaf Azalea led Cason and Virginia Callaway to create Callaway Gardens. The Wildflower Trail was established to preserve and display native plants and represents habitats from the Appalachian Mountains, Piedmont, and Coastal Plan regions of Georgia. These plant communities sustain life, and the appreciation of natural landscapes enriches the human experience.
