Meadow Walk

Location

Between 23rd St. and 25th St.

Between 23rd and 25th streets, the Meadow Walk creates a striking visual path, winding through the art galleries, warehouses, and architecturally ambitious landmarks of West Chelsea. The Meadow Walk includes densely planted Korean feather reed grass and sun-loving perennials like catmint, fernleaf yarrow, and tickseed.

Featured Plants

Korean feather reed grass

Calamagrostis arundinacea

This tall grass commands extra attention in late summer, especially when its pinkish flower heads are backlit by late afternoon light.

Wildfire black gum

Nyssa sylvatica ‘Wildfire’

The fall foliage of this tree is striking. The flowers, on the other hand, are not particularly showy, but they are valuable to honey bees.

Blackberry lily

Iris domestica

As these flowers fade, they twists and spiral like wrung-out laundry, and leave behind clusters of dark round seeds (hence the name “blackberry”).

Russian sage

Perovskia atriplicifolia

This fragrant, long-blooming member of the mint family sends up soft purple flowers from mid-summer into late fall.

Parker's Variety fern-leaf yarrow

Achillea filipendulina ‘Parker's Variety’

Blooming June to November, this yarrow (one of the more than 100 species of yarrow) is especially striking when grown among tall grass.
