|Day lilys....Not my usual cup of tea, but if you get the right colour they can be stunning. They are currently looking amazing by the Tetrapanax jungle. Being insect pollinarted they are also ok for hayfever|
The pond is looking rather full with the banana and Tetrapanax beginning to bulk out
This is the other side of the pond, the Ensete is still coming back to life, cannas and Ricinus beginning to shoot, Paulownia shooting
A yucca looking Fab.u.lous
Eccremus.....Ive found this funny as they were very ropey from seed last year, however those that survived the winter are turning into major plants with stunning tropical blooms
Yes, I am still wandering around the garden gazing at the bamboo willing it to grow taller, thicker and stronger and here at the side it is suddenly looking dense
I am back to swooning as all of a sudden the Helianthus salicifolius is back to looking fab
I admired this Clematis from afar being put off by the name (Princess Diana). What would people think? I'm not that kind of boy... however I bit the bullet and this year is is looking proper....I actually think it fits well into the garden as the flowers look rather naturalistic and I welcome the bright colours
Things are still a little bare, although the Jerusalem artichoke forest is HUGE! the banana isn't quite in leaf..
The tropics are there....Canna musifolia behind a Digitalis parviflora? gingers behind, Ricius poised to pounce...
Paulownias growing by the minute
A Kangeroo apple with Persicaria Red Dragon which is probably in need of a haircut
And finally who can resist a palm with the light shining through it!
