A public garden & cultural center

Herb and Dry Gardens

Nestled in the foundations of a former greenhouse, these terraced gardens feature herbs and ornamental plants from warmer regions of the world. The stone walls retain the sun’s warmth and provide these connected gardens with a strong architectural continuity. Culinary and medicinal herbs from around the world reside in the Herb Garden with descriptive labels describing their useful qualities. In the Dry Garden, a selection of ornamental plants from drier climates are planted in artful combinations.

Autumn Sage

Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii)

Flowering from mid-summer well into autumn, this sage extends the seasonal beauty of the garden with a variety of hybrid colors. Though it is perennial in its native habitat of Mexico and the southwestern United States, S.greggii is grown as an annual in cooler climates.
