The fragrant garden is expected to satisfy the five senses of visitors to Taehwagang Grand Park with new fragrances of the four seasons. At present, Taehwagang Grand Park is in full bloom, with lavender and other herb plants flowering in time for the ‘Taehwa River Spring Flower Festival 2018’ period. Visitors can enjoy a variety of flowers such as gardenia, Grape Myrtle, etc. in the summer, herb plants such as cherry sage and rosemary in the fall through top-shoot cutting method, as well as Osmanthus asiaticus and Osmanthus fragrans, famous for having a fragrance that can travel hundreds and thousands of miles, during the winter season.
