What’s in Bloom: June 21-28

In the Terrace Garden:

Achillea ‘Moonshine’ (Yarrow) with Lavendula ‘Munstead’ (English Lavender); lavender is actually a low-growing shrub of the Mediterranean region. The fragrance of its flowers and foliage make it popular for perennial borders and herb gardens. Here it is planted with Achillea ‘Moonshine,’ another popular plant with attractive grey-green foliage and bright yellow flowers lasting for weeks.

In the Garden Hall Courtyard:

Trollius x cultorum ‘Pritchard’s Giant’ (Globeflower); this variety of globe flower is known for large golden orange globe-shaped flowers, reaching up to three feet. It blooms in late spring/early summer and again in late summer.

In the Garden Hall Courtyard- Bank:

Digitalis grandiflora ( Big-Flowered or Yellow Foxglove); the Garden Hall Bank is covered at this time of year (early summer) by many varieties of foxglove. Digitalis Grandiflora, shown here, has large yellow flowers on stems reaching three feet.

In the West View Terrace:

Rosa ‘The Fairy’ (Polyantha shrub rose); The Fairy flowers profusely from early summer till frost bearing light pink, double-cupped flowers in large clusters. It is a vigorous plant with excellent disease resistance.

In the Arrival Trellis:

Clematis ‘Blue Angel’ with clematis H.F. Young (clematis cultivars); Blue Angel is a very heavy bloomer with blue flowers that are paler on the inside, darker along the edges, giving it a veined look. H.F. Young holds the RHS-Award of Garden Merit due to its compact free-flowering nature, producing blue flowers with yellow anthers from late spring to early summmer and again in late summer.

In the Entry Garden:

Thalictrum ‘Elin’ (Meadow Rue); one of the tallest meadow rue selections with attractive purplish stems above lacy blue-green foliage which holds sprays of lavender flowers with yellow stamens – a must have for head gardener Sandra Pella!
