Aldridge Gardens

The Aldridge Gardens was originally the home of horticulturalist Eddie Aldridge and his wife Kay, who conveyed the property to the city of Hoover in 1997. Although best known for the magnificent hydrangeas, the gardens showcase 30 acres of shade gardens with many varieties of camellias and native plants and trees. There’s a  3-acre wildflower garden, spiral herb garden, and nature trails around 7-acre lake.

What’s Special
