Recently, we had a family drive over to Kalmia with daughter and grandchildren. One in stroller. Late February there were lovely sasanqua and japonica camellias, although some had been nipped by Feb. frost. The Japanese quinces were in bloom, daffodils, winter honeysuckle (attracting honeybees, Yay!),...More

During our visit to Hartsville for a wedding, we stopped by Kalmia Gardens. Highly recommend a visit if you like nature and outdoors. Places for a picnic and a nice photo shoot.

Beautiful grounds! With 1.5 to 3+ acres to walk or ride your bike. Go with comfortable shoes and clothing as it gets pretty humid the deeper you go into the trails.

Love to walk and explore at Kalmia Gardens. The boardwalk goes over Black Creek and also follows it, allowing you to get an up-close view of a true cypress swamp and flowing creek habitat.

Kalmia Gardens is not only a garden maintained by Coker College, but a boardwalk along Black Creek and into the nearby woods. Do bring bug spray!

The walking trails are beautiful as well as the old plantation home, and flowers are everywhere! These grounds are a popular place for photos (prom and various other types). I must warn you, beware of wandering too far into the Heritage Preserve area if you...More

We walked these gardens while in Hartsville to see the "RenoFest Bluegrass Festival". The nature walk is excellent, especially the wooden walkways. Unfortunately, it was too early in the season (March) for most anything to be in bloom. We imagined that the gardens would be...More
