Acer shirasawanum ' Aureum' - golden fullmoon maplePlant collections are the foundation of the JC Raulston Arboretum. Some of these collections represent what we feel are the most comprehensive in the Southeast, the United States, or even in the world. Others simply represent collections that are more substantial than any others to be found in the southeastern United States, or they represent a representative assemblage of the best, new, or significant, members of the group. Our collection contains over 5,000 different kinds of plants. Given our space limitations, the following list is particularly striking:

Boxwood Collection
Conifer Collection
Dwarf Loblolly Pines
Herbaceous Perennials
Holly Collection
Japanese Maple Collection
Magnolia Collection
Maple Collection
Redbud Collection
