Late summer colour in the West Garden

September 26, 2012

Despite the weather and shortening daylight there is still plenty of interest and colour to enjoy in the garden. The pink Sedum [spectabile], Cosmos, Aster [frikartii] and Persicaria [amplexicaulis] are still to be spied as you walk along the herbaceous border.

Late summer colour – Persicaria, Sedum, Aster and Cosmos.

A visit to the Summer garden reveals plants from tropical regions such as the Mediterranean and East Africa. The Castor oil plant – [Ricinus Communis] is indigenous to such areas of the world. Surrounding planting includes Pennisetum [Purple Baron]. This genus of grasses is native to tropical and temperate regions of the world such as Australia, India and even the Galapagos islands.
