NY Botanical Garden, designed by Dutch plantsman & author Piet Oudolf.
The Seasonal Walk will be planted by Oudolf next week, and it opens to the public in September 2014. Oudolf is planting some 8000 bulbs and perennials in the 200 foot long double border, plants that will last through the seasons.
Bulbs are to include minor bulbs and daffodils, tulips, allium and fox tail lilies; perennials rarely seen in the US include Phlomis tuberosa 'Little Amazone', Thalictrum x 'Elin' and Datisca cannabina.
Many combinations are repeated throughout the plan, and as the seasons progress from spring to summer to fall, the colors in the border get bolder. According to the NYBG, this will be a "flowery" garden for Oudolf, one that will show off his "new perspective on naturalistic design."
