If the 5:00 darkness is making you want to crawl into bed until April, it may be time for a walk on the High Line, where the colorful blooms and fall foliage are still going strong!
Of the 210 species of grasses, perennials, shrubs, and trees on Section 1 of the High Line, 40 species are November bloomers. From delicate fall crocuses in the shade of the Washington Grasslands, to the spectacular aromatic aster shown above, to the classy winter white of the bloodtwig dogwood, there are lots of blooms to spot on the High Line this month. Our November bloom list, broken down by area of the High Line, is now available.
