A public garden & cultural center

Elliptical Garden

Formerly a swimming pool for the estate, this small garden features a non-traditional palette of primarily native plants in a formal design. It serves as a transition between the woodland and the more manicured garden areas.

Dog Fennel

Dog Fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium)

The fennel-like foliage of E. capillifolium emits a strong odor when crushed, and is thought to repel insects. 'Elegant Feather', a cultivar of this tap-rooted perennial, is grown for its red-tinged stems and flowers.
