By Lisa Esquivel Long of The News-Sentinel
Spring and summer is an ideal time to view a burst of color at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.
Located on the campus of Duke University in Durham, N.C., the Duke Gardens contains four sections: Doris Duke Center & Gardens with its visitors center and gift shop; the Historic Gardens that include perennials, terraces and a fish pool; H.L. Blomquist Garden of Native Plants containing a 36th Parallel Latitude Marker; and the W.L. Culberson Asiatic Arboretum with an arched bridge and Japanese and Chinese plants.
