What better way to celebrate National Rose Month than by showcasing the Kathrine Dulin Folger Rose Garden, which is located in front of the Arts and Industries Building to the east of the Smithsonian Castle. Dedicated in fall 1998, the Folger Rose Garden welcomes visitors not only with roses, but also with perennials, annuals, bulbs, and woody evergreens, as well as with an original 19th century, three-tiered fountain manufactured by the J. W. Fiske Iron Works Company in New York.
