业主说明: Dow Gardens is truly a garden for all seasons and is open all year. The gardens were developed in 1899 by Herbert H. Dow, founder of The Dow Chemical Company. They include massed plantings of annuals and perennials, a system of ponds, and collections of flowering crabapples, roses, viburnums, and rhododendrons. More than 20,000 tulip and daffodil bulbs are planted in the fall for spring blooms.Famed architect, Alden B. Dow, son of Herbert, added many architectural elements to the gardens. He believed as did his father that the entire beauty of the garden should never be revealed in a single glance. A walk along streamside reveals a curving pathway bordered by lush annuals and a stream, leading to an historic red bridge which takes you to the conservatory.Other attractions include the award winning Children’s Garden, a maze, and a rockery of dwarf evergreens near the entrance. Special events include the annual Christmas Walk, concerts in the gardens, butterflies in the conservatory, outdoor movies, and tours of the estate home.
