Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck & Water Feature


Between 14th St. and 15th St.

The Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck is one of the High Line’s most popular gathering spots. The water feature is a favorite of children and barefoot visitors. Wetland species like cattails, rose mallow, and swamp milkweed grow in the raised steel planters along the pathway.

Featured Plants

Dewey Blue bitter panic grass

Panicum amarum ‘Dewey Blue’

This grass is named for Dewey, Delaware, where it was discovered in the sand dunes. It is a prolific self-seeder and can be aggressive.

Smooth sumac

Rhus glabra

Sumacs, native to the Northeast, are one of the most iconic plants of the High Line. This species is named for its smooth stems.

Giant horsetail

Equisetum hyemale

These striking green stalks, often mistaken for bamboo, are members of an ancient class of plants. They reproduce through spores instead of seeds.

Rose mallow

Hibiscus moscheutos ssp. palustris

The huge pink flowers of rose mallow last only a day or two—but this showy plant blooms continuously from mid-summer to early fall.

Groundsel bush

Baccharis halimifolia

This native wetland shrub is salt-tolerant and fast-growing. The flowers of the male plants have a sweet fragrance that attracts pollinators
