The Bressingham Gardens
If you're looking for plants that enjoy hot dry positions, you wouldn't do better than Zauschneria californica. But, here at Bressingham, it is still suffering a little after the extreme heat and continued drought. Foggy Bottom. ... See MoreSee Less

Pic. 1 This is a Buddleja in a borrowed landscape. The churchyard is not full of Buddlejas, but in sight of Adrian's trial ground is this interesting looking Buddleja.pic. 2 Adrian has been making selections of Buddlejas over the last 15 years and is gradually sorting out a selection which has large flowers and intensely fragrant for attracting bees and butterflies, and even gardeners! #buddleja #purplebush #floweringshrub #happy #newplants ...

Hosta 'Honeybells' - Probably not many people know that some Hostas are also grown for their flowers, some of which are fragrant. This particular one makes a really good show of its flowers in the Dell Garden. This was one of the first cultivars with fragrant flowers and was introduced as long ago as 1960. #purpleflowers #colourpurple #summer #summer colours #summerflowers #scentedflowers #cutflowers #hosta #shade #shadeplants #bigleaf #bigleafplants ...

The Bressingham Gardens
This is another of the original selections of Crocosmia introduced by Alan Bloom and Percy Piper in 1966. Because it doesn't contain the name Bressingham, most people don't know it was introduced here. This is the fiery red 'Vulcan', which can grow to 2ft tall and is still one of the best in our opinion. Foggy Bottom. #crocosmia #perennial #summerplants #summerflower #perennialplants #summerbulbs ... See MoreSee Less

Monarda 'Raspberry Wine' - Taken with a mobile phone, this colour is as rich as you can get. Located in Adrian's Wood, it is quite stunning. One suspects this dry year might not be the best one for Monardas as a whole, but certainly the bees enjoy the nectar. Some may not know that Monardas are also called bergamot. We suggest you look it up, but the Native Americans had many uses for it and the flowers were often used as tea. #teaplant #bergamot #pinkflowers #perennial #scentedflowers #scentedfoliage #foliage #summer #summerflowers #burgundy #burgundyflowers #purpleflowers ...
