A tranquil refuge to delight the eye, expand the mind, nurture the soul and commune with the natural world, Tower Hill Botanic Garden is a year-round living museum of plants. The 132-acre site features formal and informal style gardens, meadows, walking trails and a panoramic view of Mt. Wachusett and the Wachusett reservoir to the west.
Our succulent garden is a new, temporary installation in the entry. It is a display of non-hardy succulent plants--including cactus--that are artfully displayed along with a special recycled glass mulch--an environmentally friendly "green" garden that demonstrates minimal water use and use of recycled materials.
