parkway plantings - Knowledgebase Question

Question by mtwrightnape

I saw the article about parking strip gardens - what suggestions would you have for the midwest (Chicago area), zone 5, where we have extreme ranges of temperatures along with snow, salt sprayed from city snow plows and heat in the summer?

I don't know of any salt tolerant plants that are hardy enough for Chicago winters but your local planning department might have a list of plants that are tried and true. Give them a call. I hope they can help.
