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.

Image

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

Image

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

Image

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

Image

    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.

Image

    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.

Dark Matter

Today things seemed to have taken a turn in the garden.

New leaves are unfurling everywhere and the ground is erupting with the promise of summer abundance.

           Peony ‘Molly The Witch’

Always the first peony to flower here and so welcome.

Image

            Fritillaria Imperialis.

Always have to watch for lily Beetle.

Image

        Epimedium Warleyense

 A lovely spring ground cover, with leaves tinged purple/red.

            Euphorbia Amygdaloides ‘Purpurea’

Not to everyone’s liking as it can spread, but the spring colour is stunning.

Image

         Saxifraga Fortunei’Rubrifolia’

  Glossy, always healthy, green leaves with a deep maroon underside. An impressive plant all through to autumn.

Image

         Acer….now unknown as I cut the original down and this is the graft that grows. I like it much better.

Image

          A seedling Auricula not a good specimen, but I will keep it all the same.

I always get such a buzz from seeing all the new growth in the spring, it’s almost worth going through the winter for it….
