Johnson garden featured on Azalea Garden Tour


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Azaleas come in many different colors.

Color is very important to the owner of this garden, Susan Johnson, and she uses it abundantly on her front door and in the vibrant pots placed on her front steps.

Searching for unique touches is a passion and her garden reflects many of her unique finds.

Johnson’s dogs are another passion and her backyard is designed with them in mind.

All plants that could be trampled by exuberant pets are elevated in pots and troughs for protection and easy maintenance.

This is the garden’s first time being on the Garden Tour.

“My garden is different than a lot of others, I think, in that I haven’t been nurturing mine for a long time,” Johnson said. “Mine has been much more of a rehab, restore situation before and after which I think people will find interesting.”

The garden also offers eclectic seating around a fire pit.

The Cape Fear Garden Club’s Azalea Garden Tour runs Friday through Sunday.
