The West View Terrace in Bloom …

By | What's In Bloom | April 23, 2013 | No comments

The West View Terrace has a good sampling of what is to be found in bloom throughout – Here is that sampling!  The hellebores have really taken off and continue to highlight the terrace beds.  Helleborus x hybridus ‘Picotee’ (Lenten rose) is a must-have.

Helleborus x hybridus ‘Apricot’ (Lenten Rose)

Helleborus foetidus ‘Gold Bullion’ (Stinking hellebore)

Helleborus purpurascens (Hellebore)

Making way for daffodils, Narcissus ‘Rijnveld’s Early Sensation’ compliments the hellebore collection in the West View Terrace.

The yellow flowers of Iris danfordiae have made way for the blue of Scilla siberica ‘Spring Beauty’ (Siberian Squill) in the West View Terrace and throughout.

Escaping to the Pollinator Garden, Helleborus x ballardiae ‘HGC Pink Frost’ is in full bloom.

Escaping even further, in the Entry Garden groups of Iris reticulata ‘Katharine Hodgkin’ (Reticulata iris) planted just last fall are proving to be show-stoppers.
