This charming pathway in the South Garden of Central Park's Conservatory is bordered by many textures and colors. The included plants have many benefits.
While the Berberis thunbergii 'Crimson Pygmy' does have thorns/spines which may be a problem for children, this plant is resistant to deer, drought, dry soil, erosion, urban conditions, heat, and pollution. Panicum virgatum is highly flammable but is resistant to black walnut, deer, drought, dry soil, erosion, pollution, salt, and wet soil. In addition, the showy Anemone x hybrida 'Honorine Jobert' is resistant to deer and rabbits.
