Information on Folger Elizabethan garden from their website: http://www.folger.edu/woSummary.cfm?woid=323
Explore our garden, inspired by herbal references in Shakespeare's plays and also incorporating plants popular in his time, including lavender, creeping thyme, and English ivy; a knot garden; and Shakespearean statues by American sculptor Greg Wyatt. Folger docents offer insights into plantings, Elizabethan customs, and more.
Docent-led garden tours are offered at 10am and 11am on the first and third Saturday of each month, April through October.
The Elizabethan Garden is open year-round, Monday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm, and before most Folger performances for self-guided tours.
