Athyrium filix-femina ‘Minutissimum’
In its native range, this pioneering fern will take hold on rock surfaces. The fiddleheads are edible, with a flavor reminiscent of artichokes.
Wisteria frutescens ‘Amethyst Falls’
Native to Northeast American moist woodlands, American wisteria is far less aggressive than Asian varieties.
This cool-season European grass is one of the first plants on the High Line to begin growing in the spring. Moor grass also does well in shade.
Betula populifolia ‘Whitespire’
With distinctive triangular markings punctuating white bark, gray birch is one of the most elegant and easily recognized trees on the High Line.
The High Line is beautiful thanks in large part to individual supporters like you. Members provide the tools and resources our gardeners need to keep the gardens open to everyone for seasons to come.Become a Member
