Queens Botanical Garden - Where people, plants, and cultures meet
Green Roof

A semi-intensive, 8,000-square-foot green roof with six inches of growing medium, planted with mostly native species that require minimal artificial watering and provide much-needed habitat for humans, birds, and insects. At the base of the Green Roof is a collection of native woodland plants featuring ferns, shrubs, sedges, and wildflowers, among others. (Click here for the initial planting list.)
