In my opinion, Butchart Gardens has been the nicest I've seen. Here in NC, Duke Gardens in Durham is also very nice and worth seeing.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Tropical Hawaii Botanical Garden when we were in Hawaii. Only bad part was the walk back up from the garden to the parking area

The Portland (OR) Japanese Garden was one of my favorites but it became difficult to find quiet times to enjoy it as many felt cell phone use is appropriate.

Be sure you visit it in the right season. I was there last March, and very little was blooming. Yes, the setting is quite nice, though.
