    Dryas drummondii

    The first seed heads of note this season are on Dryas drummondii ‘Grandiflora’ growing on the alpine wall

  • Iris ensata, south of the pond. E & C Asia, Large white flowers, petals plate like splayed down at edges, yellow markings on the inner centre. The cultivar ‘Landscape at Dawn’ growing to the north of the pond has light blue petals, very worthwhile growing. In the rock garden, c.v. ‘Rose Queen’ is shy to flower with washed out purple blooms.
