With a string of humid, 90+ degree days, our community gardens are at their peak lushness! In the 91st Street Garden on the Promenade level of Riverside Park, look for 9-foot tall roses and sunflowers, dinner-plate-sized white and pink hibiscus, swaths of black-eyed Susans and hot-pink phlox, puffy hydrangeas in pink, purple, and white, and much, much more. Many perennials are in full bloom and the pollinators have a wealth of enticing choices, including the orange and yellow tropical milkweed, which has just started to bloom.
