The ephemeral meadow

Before (during) / After

Presented in the exhibition the A city's beauty Conception et réalisation par Wagon Landscaping

The place of plants in the city is at the heart of the reflections on the new aesthetic of Paris.

The garden is organized around four main collections of plants:
* traditional ornamental plants that have been found in parks since the 19th century: plants from all over the world, often exotic, whose life has been shortened by our harsh winters, used in the planted beds of Parisian squares and parks;
* Biodiversity-friendly: plants that are often melliferous and contribute to the balance of the biotopes of insects and small fauna in the contemporary city;
* the companions of the climatic transition: plants from other climates (Mediterranean for the most part), which have appeared spontaneously or have been planted and are particularly well adapted to climate change;
* the adapted to the urban soils of Paris : hardy perennials, great wanderers that express the richness of the poor and draining soils of the city, and which are not greedy for water and maintenance.
