The North Plaza at the Rockefeller Center is an extension of our project “Rewilding the American Meadow”.
The Rewilding Project is extending over the streets and restaurants plaza and offers an even larger selection of plants native from the North East of the US. The dense planting plays a screening purpose for restaurants and contributes to social distancing while introducing the public to the flora of New York. The sequence of blooms has been evolving throughout Spring, Summer, and Fall. We chose a range of plants that would bloom at different times over the duration of the installation. In the planters, we propose a mix of grasses and perennials offering pink and purple blooms that will shift in October towards orange and yellow tones to match the bronze color of the grasses in the fall.
