New York City’s oldest public park, Bowling Green, got a horticultural makeover as the Alliance for Downtown New York introduced 1,024 new plants along the park’s perimeter and interior walkways. The new landscaping includes a colorful palette of indigenous plants, including: silver and purple Coral Bells, white Foamy Bells, bright yellow Ligularia, scarlet red Daylily, pink, white and red False Spira, and five variations of Hosta. The new plant beds also feature two Japanese plants: the Variegated Japanese Sedge and Variegated Japanese Iris.
