Just beyond the Chelsea Market Passage, a grove of three-flowered maple trees frames a spectacular view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The planting beds just south of the 10th Ave. Square contain a mix of moor grasses, false indigo, foam flower, and an interesting combination of spring bulbs.
A spectacular display: Observed from a distance, these flowers appear suspended in midair—an illusion of a “shooting star” falling from the sky.
Unlike hybridized roses that are plagued by pests and disease, this beautiful native species thrives as a showy hedge without chemical intervention.
Rhus aromatica ‘Gro-low’
When the leaves and stems of this small shrub are crushed, the plant releases oils with a sharp, spicy fragrance.
This perennial grass grows in fluffy rounded globes, with wispy thin blades that have the soft texture of long hair in winter.
Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Alice’
Large, profuse white blooms in summer are just the beginning; in fall, the foliage of this perennial turns brilliant shades of purple, red, and gold.
