Stargate Manor Arboretum is the vision of Mr. George C. Coulam, owner and founder of the Texas Renaissance Festival. Our main plant interests center around cold hardy palms, American and Asian lotus, Canna Lilies, and Evergreen Magnolias. We plan to go public once the entire garden infrastructure is completed.

We are excited to be starting an internship program at our 200 acre private Arboretum in Spring and Summer of 2018! From this internship the student will learn about the development and maintenance of an ornamental landscape. The art venues are designed, constructed, and maintained on the grounds by Mr. Coulam’s dedicated art team. Our entrance garden irrigation system was also incorporated in an artistic fashion by designing them into decorative roman columns.
