Shinjuku Gyoenmae

Stunning pink flower repeats itself on 5 floor mid-rise vertical garden

素敵なピンックの花が5階にわたって繰り返されています。新宿御苑前の垂直庭園です。

This simple pink flower thrives in a former non-space on a typical mid-rise office building. Last summer I posted a photo showing the full 5 story, vertical garden column on this mid-rise Shinjuku Gyoenmae office building.

Recently I passed by and was drawn to this beautiful pink flower with lush leaves repeating themselves all the way up.

Update: @JasonDewees informed me that it’s a bergenia. Seems wells-suited to vertical city life.
