This is where I purchased my Cajun Hibiscus. A huge selection of garden accents of all kinds. We were so inspired we are going to put in a water feature!

The American Aquatic Gardens is really a beautiful oasis in the heart of New Orleans, but buyer beware. We bought 2 water lilies there last summer that came to well over $100. We put in a pond and had bought quite a few things there...More

What a place to dream and make your outdoor space into a little bit of NOLA heaven! I loved the selection of aquatic fountains in all price points. Not to mention the flowering plants, ceramic decorations and everything for that 'new age-zen' experience.

Faubourg Marigny & Bywater
Nestled between the French Quarter and the Ninth Ward,
the Faubourg Marigny & Bywater environs are largely
residential. Of course, folks around here love to go
out and have a good time as much as they do anywhere
in NOLA. And if out-of-towners want to join in the
festivities, well then so much the better! Home to
some of the most revered live music venues in New
Orleans, an eclectic gaggle of gourmand dining
