In my previous post, I gave you an overview of the 250 acres that comprise New York City’s magnificent botanical garden. In this post, I’ll get more specific.
For starters, check out this dusty miller (jacobaea maritima) in topiary form. We figured they must dig it up and overwinter it in one of the conservatories.
Everyone loved this hydrangea macrophylla “Frau Reiko.” The flowers are much pinker in person, but still delicate enough to marry well in almost any garden.
While we’re on the subject, here’s another hydrangea that caught my eye.
And finally, this oakleaf, in full bloom. Gorgeous in the dappled light.
I know it’s probably not my place to question this, but a bed of heuchera in a hot location in full sun? You can’t tell from the photo, but the plants looked unhappy and their leaves were beginning to crisp up.
On a happier note, there were many plantings of Japanese iris, and they were at their peak.
I will leave you with a photo of a stunning allee of huge tulip poplars – among my favorite trees.
In the next installment: the rose garden
