Rose Parterre

Deep Cut Gardens is dedicated to the home gardener. The 54 acres of gardens and greenhouses are planned as a living catalog of cultivated and native plant materials to be observed through the seasons. Our renovated Parterre features 52 varieties of roses with over 180 bushes.



Discover new ways to improve your home garden by taking a walking tour of the park, ask the staff horticultural questions, or visit the reference library. Garden programs and classes are also offered. See the latest offerings under HORTICULTURE.
