The Herb Garden is modeled after a traditional European-style garden, with plants organized neatly into straight rows. This formally designed garden space is a stark contrast to the winding pathways and curved garden beds you will find in other areas throughout Dow Gardens.
The plants you see growing in the Herb Garden were carefully chosen for their taste, aroma, and aesthetic appeal. The area is bordered by Green Mountain boxwood and features dwarf Korean lilacs in the center. The plot houses an artfully arranged rotation of basil, lavender, sage, and parsley of differing varieties. We encourage you to sample a leaf or two and see which variety you like best!
