Gowanus Garden


We walked past the garden on the Gowanus Canal recently.


I had not noticed the yucca [see comments!] before. It may be new.


Old fashioned favourites - lamb's ears, echinacea...


And yellow loosetrife (Lysimachia punctata) looking very good with a blue salvia.


An unknown sedum spills through the wire and onto the sidewalk.


Roses and fire water to put them out if they get too hot.


I wonder if late summer will bring sunflowers.

  3. Amazing what someone who cares can do in a couple of feet between concrete strips!

  4. I think that might be a Yucca rather than Agave. The one in my garden has a 6+ foot flower spike on it right now, about to bloom.

  6. I love this garden and your blog. I found your blog a few years ago by following a link to this garden from another site (I think it might have been Apartment Therapy). I have been a regular reader ever since.
