A Lovely Border Idea for Your Late Spring Garden

This ravishing scene belongs to the 75,000 square feet of Battery Park gardens designed by the internationally acclaimed Dutch horticulturist Piet Oudolf. While Battery Park is an invaluable part of New York City’s history, it is also a lovely place to wander with its beautiful waterfront and flower gardens. This late spring vignette highlights 3 beautiful flowering varieties: radiant Tulip 'Red Shine', the fabulous Ornamental Onion 'Purple Sensation' (Allium) and glowing yellow Bearded Iris (Iris germanica).

A planting idea that is ideal for beds and borders. All plants won prestigious awards and make excellent cut flowers. Most of them are deer and rabbit resistant as well as drought tolerant. Enjoy!
