Sunken Gardens contains more than 30 000 individual annual plants, which are redesigned to a specific theme each year. It's one of the 300 best gardens to be visited by the American and Canadian public gardens in the national geographic guide. Longtime lincoln families of the seacrests initially provided the 1.5 acres. Every spring, tourists can tiptoe through the tulips and watch thousand of annuals bloom all summer time and then enjoy the varied trees and shrubs' peaceful winter interest. Garden is an annual show plant, which is 85 years old and open to the public. There is a healing garden (or white garden) in the yard, a perennial garden, and an annual garden. You can take considerable time there before going into the Sunken Gardens across the street.
