Just north of Belzoni on highway 7, visitors will be delighted by beautiful Wister Gardens. Thousands of azaleas of many varieties line pathways, cover wooded areas and drives and set the Garden aglow from about March 25 to April 25. Pears, peaches, plums, fresh prunes, apples, apricots and nectarines provide many colors in bloom for spring.
Hundreds of roses are scattered throughout the gardens, with two designated rose gardens. Daylilies abound in the Garden with the best viewing of the hundreds of varieties during early June through July. Crape myrtles provide outstanding color through the months of July, August and September.
Visitors walking through the gardens will not only see beautiful flowers and shrubs, but will enjoy watching the various fowl roaming the spacious acreage. White Mute Holland swans, Black Australian swans, and a variety of ducks occupy the four acre lake.
