Flowers Plantation is unlike any community in central North Carolina. The active adult will thrive within this community which boats a plenitude of home styles for every age group from young singles to growing families to retirees. Designed to be more of a small town than a new home community residents enjoy pools, extensive walking trails, an ever growing shopping and dining community, a fitness center, and much more. Plenty of outdoor recreation includes twenty miles of walking trails connecting all portions of the development to the Neuse River Parkway. Single family homes, villas, townhomes and cottages are being built many with first floor primary suites for ease of living and some low maintenance options as well.

Mr. Flowers was active in business, civic life and local and state politics. Mr. Flowers raised champion walker hounds, owning more than 300 by the time of his death in 1982.
