About this Outdoor Garden
Designed to inspire guests, this Garden peaks in late summer/early fall with flowering shrubs and perennials that are nestled in the hillside.
Please note: Starting mid-October 2014, Caryopteris Allée will be temporarily closed due to restoration and renovation of our Main Fountain Garden. We apologize for any inconvenience. Find out more about New Heights: The Fountain Revitalization Project. And be sure to explore what's On Now in the Gardens!
The area now called the Hillside Garden was built into a man-made hillside between 1929 and 1932 during the excavation for the Main Fountain Garden. A rocky flume was added in 1932. In 1960 it became a Rock Garden, and in 1963 a Heath and Heather Garden was planted nearby. The Rock Garden was renamed the Hillside Garden in 1982, and it has continued to be developed over the years.
