As I have attempted to hint at in the two previous posts, the garden at Great Dixter was full of wonderful plants! Below is a selection from those that offered the most enjoyment, although it was jolly difficult to choose!
This is the last of the Dixter reports; I have to move on with my life.
|Tagetes ‘Cinnabar’, Christopher Lloyd selected this over several years by growing long rows of them and saving seed from the tallest plant each year|
|Cosmos bipinnatus ‘Rubenza’ & Ageratum houstonianum ‘Red Sea’|
|One of East Sussex’s finest getting stuck in to Amberboa muricata|
|Dipsacus fullonum, Teasel. Cracks in the path, it’s all over the bally place! A wonderful plant|
|Clematis viticella ‘Alba Luxurians’, I just read an article suggesting if you only have space for one Clematis then this is it! Strong stuff but it was certainly a joy to discover|
|Eucryphia x nymansensis 'Nymansay', this is a huge tree that was smothered in these delightfully scented blooms|
|A gem spotted in the plant sale area|
