Flowers are few in my shady Upstate garden, but my mind is still swimming with the beautiful blooms I saw in England recently. Here are a few of my favorites at RHS Wisley.
Dark, upright stems of Phlomis russeliana against a graceful ornamental grass.
Hydrangea paniculata Vanille Fraise ‘Renky’ in the woodland garden.
Dahlia ‘Veracruz’ in the trial garden.
Eutrochium purpureum (our native joe-pye weed) in a border featuring ornamental grasses.
A view of the stunning herb garden, still buzzing with bees and other insects.
Taking cuttings of Cuphea in the mixed border on Battleston Hill.
