Still in Daphne’s garden but with more reality as of today.
Aconitum ‘Spark’s Variety’ is splendid in mid-August.
Meanwhile at home Aronia arbutifolia ‘Brilliant’ in the Isla Rose Plantation is covered in fruits for the first time.
Quercus x bushii ‘Seattle Trident’ had gorgeous light pink new growth. The huge leathery leaves are therefore a big surprise. A really good new oak for the collection. Planted in only 2017.
‘Magic’ but very edible mushrooms on the lawn.

Not more than half of our 2 years daffs are out of their pans from lack of labour and energy. The buddleias are good also odd flowers are open on Auriculatum, Brachycarpum, Caucasicum, Primulicum with other mountain forms including Hippophaeoides which is very pretty.
