Downtown Planters

Initially provided as a gift to the City of Pittsburgh for its 250th birthday celebration, more than 600 large planters accent main pedestrian corridors downtown all year long. Colcom Foundation first proposed this “bouquet of flowers” for the city’s birthday in 2008 and has continued to renew the project year after year.

 Springtime Daffodil display in Downtown Pittsburgh

Seasonal flower displays line the streets of Downtown Pittsburgh during the course of the entire year. Daffodils and pansies usher in spring, combinations of mixed summer flowers bring color to key corridors in the summer, chrysanthemums brighten the streets when things turn brown in the fall and an assortment of evergreens remains vibrant in grey winter months.
