Herb Garden dedicated to Barb Sieg
This parterre garden was created to honor Barbara’s vision to restore Whipps Cemetery. She spent more than 25 years studying, designing, and working to restore Whipps Cemetery. She retired from active participation at Whipps in December 2010.

A parterre is a formal garden design with planting beds typically edged in stone, hedges, and paths arranged in a symmetrical pattern. French parterres originated in 15th-century such as the Chateau of Versailles.

This garden is planted with assorted flowering part-shade herbs surrounding a statue of St. Francis of Assisi and pinks. Herbs include catmint, chives, oregano, wooly thyme, lemon balm, and creeping rosemary. Other plants surrounding the garden are green velvet boxwood shrubs, monarda, baby Joe Pye weed, Echinacea, St. John’s Wort and anise hysopp.
