A Garden View

 

Another one of our gardeners has sent me images of what her garden looks like this week.  Let’s see…

 

Meg's garden mixed Digitalis Firebird, selfsown cosmos A

The pink stems of flowers here are one of the new inter-generic hybrid foxgloves, Digiplexis ‘Firebird’, or is it called Digitalis x valinii?  There seems to be disagreement.  Probably the latter, since one of its parents, Isoplexis canariensis has now been reclassified as Digitalis canariensis, having shown that it could successfully be crossed with Digitalis species.  It was bred in the UK.

The Cosmos plants are self-sown – the seeds seem to happily survive the winter, since this gardener makes a habit of doing this every year.

 

Meg's Rose Lichfield Angel A

This David Austin rose is ‘Lichfield Angel’.

 

Meg's roses ThankYou and Lichfield Angel, Allium Millenial A

‘Lichfield Angel’ again on the right, and ‘Thankyou’ on the left of the bird bath.  Allium ‘Millenial’ is about to open up next to the bird bath.

 

Meg's Campanula Dwarf Pink A

This is Campanula lactiflora ‘Dwarf Pink’.  I know it well – it was one of the range of seeds that was included in the seed sowing exercise that I set the groups three or four years ago.  Here, the word ‘dwarf’ is definitely relative.  The plant grows about 6 inches shorter than normal C. lactiflora.

 

Meg's monarda A

Monarda, probably ‘Adam’, that seems to really be enjoying itself.

 

Thanks for sharing!
