CRIMSON AND GOLD
Walking around the garden on Friday afternoon, it was the deep red, the crimsons and the golds that caught my eye. So this week there is richly Autumnal colour theme to my post. First up are a pair of Periscarias.
1. Persicaria 'Son of Firetail'
2. Persicaria 'Red Dragon'
I love, love, love this plummy purple penstemon. Well it's actually four plants in a group, so that they make a little more impact.
4. Crimson and Gold in the Long Border
Looking both ways, the Long Border is predominantly crimson, and the other way is all autumnal golds, the fallen ash leaves adding to the ochre pallet.
5. Pyroclastic Acer
The volcanic flow gets larger every year, but I can't bear to prune it. I wonder how large these can get?
6. Cordyline in flower
This one is not in my garden, but in my parents. I thought it merited a wider audience. To me, it falls into the 'I can't believe you can grow that in our climate' category. Amazing!
That's all from me for this week. Thanks, as always, go to The Propagator for hosting Six on Saturday.
