Final Floral Flurries!
23 October 2013
October is a time to see late colour from plants in the mixed borders. Sedums with there bright pink, red or white flowers, along with Ceratostigma, Fuchsia and a few final flowering flurries from shrub roses. In the box beds behind Wychfield House you can see a very strident blue flower, this is Aster x frikartii 'Monch', a magical autumn flowering plant that lights up the bed due to its colour combination of bright sky blue and egg yolk yellow.
