The High Line in June

Roughly 3 miles after starting off at Battery Park, you arrive at the High Line. 

Persicaria amplexicaulis (I think) and grass.

Stunning, and very surprising (to me) Eremurus stenophyllus.

Planted again and again, with wild quinine (Parthenium integrifolium) in the part called the Chelsea Grasslands.

Vince employing his small camera for macro.

More wild quinine.

White echinacea in the new section.

Magnolia virginiana planted as a metal catwalk raises you to mid branch height. Smells sweet.

The High Line, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Battery Park, Hudson River Park. New York as she never was. Destinations for plant lovers. Absolutely breathtaking.


  1. Thanks for the photos of the new section. I hope to get there in the next couple weeks, preferably early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

  2. Absolutely lovely!

    It made me have another look at the pictures I took last year, it was a lovely day, just like this.

  3. Can't wait to see the new section.

  4. The Highline is amazing. Echinacea is one of favorites. The eremurus stenophyllus is stunning. Have never seen it, must investigate.

  5. Magnolia? who'd imagine that! So lovely adn not at all what i expect in nyc. thanks for sharing.

  6. Very attractive serial of photo, with eremurus and partheniums. I am going to become a reader of your site.
