Folger Rose Garden


Dedicated in 1998, The Kathrine Dulin Folger Rose Garden lies on the east side of the Smithsonian Castle.

From mid-May through November, roses grace the garden with color and fragrance. Bulbs, perennials, annuals, tropical plants, potted herbs and evergreens enhance the garden’s year-round beauty.

The cast iron fountain in the center of the garden is an original 19th century, three-tiered fountain. The four Victorian benches surrounding the fountain provide visitors with a resting place where they can enjoy both the beauty of the garden and the mist from the fountain.
