PHS Pop Up Garden at South Street


What's Blooming

PHS Horticulturists bring their extensive experience in creating dynamic, seasonally interesting public gardens to a more tailored and intimate experience for each of our Pop Up Garden. One PHS Pop Up Garden highlight is the plants themselves. Both in-ground planting beds and containers throughout the garden serve to inspire visitors with a creative mix of shrubs, perennials, spring-blooming bulbs, annuals and tropicals. Explore a sampling of what is currently planted in our garden below.
