More Dark Matter.

There seems to be eruptions of one colour and the garden has in certain places took a dark turn.

      An unnamed Iris, rescued from an abandoned allotment several years ago.

    Eucomis, looks like a good year. Several more shoots showing too.

    Thalictrum Aquilegiifolium, I have several with these lovely dark purple stems growing to about 150 cms tall. Always goes quick on my plant stall.

    Cotinus Royal Purple. Beautiful foliage in early summer and again in the autumn.

    Heuchera

        Grown from mixed seed from Plant World about 5 years ago, the original is now in my daughters garden and grows to about 120 cms tall. This is a cutting from the original taken last year. A large plant when fully grown and very impressive.

    Euphorbia Amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’  a little common and slightly invasive, but in the right situation sets off oranges and yellows. I’ve just noticed the tiny coral coloured flowers….. quite cute.

So I wonder what will be the next fashionable colour in the garden. ….Watch this space.
