About Aldridge Gardens


Aldridge Gardens is a 30-acre woodland garden featuring hydrangeas nestled in the heart of Hoover. In fact, for many years the property was the home of noted nurseryman Eddie Aldridge, who discovered and patented the Snowflake Hydrangea, and his wife Kay. The couple conveyed the property to the city of Hoover in 1997. Complete with a five-acre lake and walking trails, Aldridge Gardens is laden with hydrangeas, camellias, Japanese maples, azaleas, bonsai, and native Alabama plants.

Our vision is to be the premier nature and art garden in the southeast.

Our mission is to be a venue for visitors to experience how nature and art can work for the mutual benefit of both.
