The North Carolina Arboretum, located on the outskirts of Asheville, contains a unique garden called the Heritage Garden. The garden contains plants that the early Appalachian settlers used to create and enhance the necessities of life. Broomcorn was used by Indians, settlers, and now present-day artisans to make brooms. Marigolds, yarrow, and butterfly weed were sources for natural fabric dyeing.
