Synopsis
The perennial meadow at Weihenstephan Gardens was planted in 2017. Unlike most the planting in the gardens the meadow does not have a plan, nor does it show the classic differentiation of heights (all plants reach about the same size). As in a flower meadow the plants have been randomly laid out over the whole area. The impression of a meadow is due both to the use of ornamental grasses and perennials with the grass-like leaves of daylilies and iris. Of special interest is the choice of plants with autumn colouring. The decorative perennials have their origins in all parts of the world; they act as the meadow's flowers. To minimize maintenance strong competitors have been selected. They are cut back only once a year at the end of winter. A mulch layer prevents evaporation and enables people to walk on small paths.
