Hydrangea paniculata ‘Tardiva’ beauty indeed! Medium sized shrub with a stunning display of white flowers arranged in panicles. The blooms look fresh on the shrub for a long time. Even after they’ve faded, they look like white moths dancing around the shrub. The bed to the west of the Fern & Fossils Glasshouse.
Tilia tomentosa, The Silver Lime/Linden, named because of the silvery underside of its leaves. Currently blooming, the heady honey scented flowers are a favourite of bees. This pyramidal tree becomes more oval as it ages and reaches up to 70′ in height. On the edge of the road just before the lower west entrance of the Chinese Hillside.
