WEEKLY PIC: MARCH10 – WEEK1

Rosemary Border with Pride of India

Late summer brings fewer flowers and greater subtlety. In the Upper Rosemary Border penstemon, coreopsis, rudbeckia hirta, rock roses and various abelias are still in flower, but much is over. In the background two very different and very lovely trees that share a common name  – ‘Pride of India’ – are coming to the end of their contribution as well. In the centre the dusky pink flowers of Lagerstroemia indica (crype myrtle) and on the right the yellowish spikes of  Koelreuteria paniculata (Golden-rain-tree) support the pinks and yellows in the border below.
