What’s Growing in the Garden 

Design Statement - 2023 Season

PHS Public Gardens & Landscapes team designed each section of Logan Square with an intricate spine consisting of urban tough species, focusing on airy grasses and taller perennials to create a backdrop for the summer annuals. 
Shrubs have been planted throughout the beds as highlights, many of which are Gold Medal Plant selections. For winter interest, Juniperus virginiana ‘Hetzi Columnaris’ and Juniperus virginiana Emerald Sentinel® have punctuated the 
midsection; these are then used as backdrops for red twig dogwood cultivars. Many of the brighter drifts of perennials will focus on the open areas to capture vehicular traffic sightlines, with more nuanced and subtle color combinations 
being repeated for pedestrians. When visiting Logan Square, walk around the site for new plantings. Each year is unique, and the beds are never the same throughout the seasons.

El equipo de los Jardines y Paisaje Publicos de PHS diseñó cada sección de Logan Square con especies urbanas duras, centrándose en pastos aireados y plantas perennes más altas para crear un telón de fondo para las plantas anuales de verano. Se han plantado arbustos a lo largo de las camas como puntos destacados, muchos de que son selecciones de los ‘Gold Medal Plants.’ En invierno, se puede encontrar Juniperus virginiana ‘Hetzi Columnaris’ y Juniperus virginiana Emerald Sentinel® en la sección media; que luego se utilizan como telón de fondo para los cultivares de cornejo de ramita 
roja. Muchas de las más brillantes de las plantas perennes se centrarán en las áreas abiertas para capturar las líneas de visión del tráfico vehicular, con combinaciones de colores más matizadas y sutiles que se repetirán para los peatones. Continúe visitando Logan Square y camine por el sitio para ver 
nuevas plantaciones. Cada año es único, y el jardin nunca es el mismo a lo largo de las estaciones
