Roslindale Branch Library

The library beds were planted in 2005 in cooperation with the Mayor’s Office and the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Boston. The planting consists of a single scheme repeated five times as it follows the round fa├žade of the building. The plant palette is primarily blue and yellow, to coordinate with the blue and yellow colors found in the decorative tiles and windows of the unusual early 1960s era building. Plants were chosen to be both hardy and drought tolerant, and to provide year round interest to passersby.
