This week I’ve tried to find six plants that haven’t been shown previously in a recent posts, it wasn’t easy! The wind and the rain that we had this last week have taken their toll and there has been a lot of cutting back and deadheading going on, however there is still a lot for me to enjoy.
No 1 Candelabra primula
Most of my first candelabra primulas are now starting to form seed, but this lilac/purple one has just started flowering, I know I’ll want to save seed of this one, it will look gorgeous with the peachy one.
No 2. Clematis viticella Etoile Violette
This clematis is climbing up an obelisk under the dead oak, but it has also climbed beyond into a Myrtle tree and from there will go into the oak, when will it stop?
No 3 Philadelphus Belle Etoile
Philadelphus Belle Etoile just comes into flower as my other mock orange is fading so the perfume continues for another few weeks.
No 4 Stipa gigantea
Stipa gigantea is my favourite grass with its waving plumes. This is its best year so far.
It looks even better when the sun shines through it.
No 5 Digitalis
Foxgloves are opening all over the garden, somehow they always manage to put themselves in the right place. This one however didn’t allow for headroom when it put itself under my Acer Osakazuki. It has now grown taller than me, taller than the acer, I wonder how tall it will eventually be?
No 6 Rosa Liverpool Hope.
A new bed has been made for this new small rose as the Undergardener was Liverpool born and bred. I’m hoping it will only grow to the 18 inches it is supposed to as I have planted 3 rose bushes and will add some small blue salvias to carry on the blue colour when the campanula finishes.
These are my 6 for this week, thanks go as usual to Jon The Propagator for hosting, do pay him a visit where you will see lots more, its worth it!
