Across the creek that runs the northern edge of the Gardens, against the backdrop of a sunny hillside, sits the Bog Garden brimming with aquatic-loving species.
Although this boggy low point is wet even on the driest days, a boardwalk invites you to come closer and discover the range of native water-loving plants, such as white-topped pitcher plants, swamp milkweed, Carolina spiderlily, scarlet rose mallow, and cardinal flower.
Highs and Lows
As you pass through the upland meadow and ascend the rocky hillside you will find plants that thrive in sunny and dry locations like native crab apple trees, purple love grass, species of native phlox, bee balm, milkweed, and salvias. At the top of the hill you will want to take a seat on the stone bench and soak in stunning views of the Gardens from above.
