Edward Everett Square
The planting design for Edward Everett Square in Dorchester incorporates bold bands of plant types that have a strong visual impact in this busy urban intersection.
Selected native plants have staggered flowering times providing visual interest in all seasons, and are drought tolerant when established to thrive in this tough urban environment. The flower color palette consists of yellows and oranges which will increase the visibility of the planting from a distance and as viewed from passing vehicles. The color palette also complements the existing materials on site including brick paving and the monumental bronze pear sculpture.
