Q

Are there plans available for the planting designs used in the 2016 American Impressionism exhibit?

Last year, you had an exhibit in the conservatory based on gardens depicted by impressionist artists in the US. Do you have plans for those gardens that can be duplicated in home gardens? where can I buy them or copy them?

Answer

While the plants in the American Impressionism exhibit were of types that are typical of a New England garden, they were being grown for longevity in a conservatory environment and thus are not the varieties or cultivars that would necessarily be best for a home garden. So while we do not have plans that are available to duplicate at home, I can provide you with a complete list of the plants we used (see below) for your own research as to suitability to your garden conditions.

I can also direct you to our guide called American Impressionist Exhibit: Featured Plants  for more information on cultivating the poppies, peonies, foxgloves and delphiniums featured in the show.  Another resource would be to search Flickr for photos of the NYBG show to see planting layouts for individual beds that may appeal to you. If you discover a grouping you like and need further help identifying the plants, let us know!

Good luck with your garden plans.
