BID Program Spotlight: Summer Plantings

Have you noticed some changes on the Flatiron Public Plazas this week? The BID's landscaping team A. Bulfamante Landscaping has been hard at work, filling the 148 planters with new summer flowers, including victoria blue salvia, lantana, petunia, coleus, ipomoea, balcon geraniums, and hibiscus. They are also replacing trees that are dead or severely damaged after the long, hard winter.

Next, the team will be working in the Park Avenue South Median Malls to remove plants that did not survive the harsh winter. Soon you will see dragon wing-leafed begonias, rose-colored impatiens, coleus, and salvia in the middle of Park Avenue South from 21st Street to 28th Street.

Later this week, the BID's 164 tree pits will change from purple and white pansies to red dragon wing-leafed begonia, and the BID's 38 hanging flower baskets will be filled with white begonias. 

We always love to see your photos of Flatiron's flowers, tag us on Instagram or Twitter with @FlatironNY!
