Rose Garden

The Rose Garden is clothed in ecclesiastical purple with Alliums, Polemonium, Salvias, Sibirican Irises, mauve chives around the edges- huge silver Cynara and the silver lavenders, weeping pear tree, catmint are creating a great foil for all those purple flowers. Amazing transformation from the royal reds a only a couple of weeks ago- tulips in shades of burgundy, red, orange, vermillion- now gone and I can't even see the withered foliage the growth of perennials is so fast at the moment. I would like to freezethe moment, but the roses will come next so there is always something to look forward to.     Alliums Rose garden Ellicar resize blog
