Arboretum & botanic garden in RODEMACK awarded with the Label Protected historic garden.
Created in 1990 by the Association "Les Amis des Vieilles Pierres pour la Sauvegarde de Rodemack", the Medieval Garden evokes the “hortus conclusus” of fortified castles. It is an enclosed garden with cultivated areas forming geometric patterns. Each cultivated area is bordered by a cobblestone path. Several species are found here : Medicinal plants: borage, salad burnet, camomile, lemon balm, sage, etc.
Herbs and fragrant plants: patience dock, tarragon, Welsh onion, lavender, angelica, savory, etc.
Flowers: cornflower, forget-me-not, lupin, China aster, and last but not least: rose, the ultimate medieval flower.
Various trees and trimmed hedges are planted around the garden, such as blackcurrant, medlar, and cherry.
