New Additions to the Garden
New additions to the garden this week include this Bidens heterophylla, bought at the Malvern Autumn show last week. At the moment it is about 4ft high but I understand it can grow to 6ft. Its a lovely graceful plant and the flowers are a yummy pale buttery yellow.
Another new acquisition which finally got planted out this weekend is Persicaria amplexicaulis ‘Atrosanguinea’. I bought this from Hampton Court in Herefordshire back in August but it has been languishing on my patio every since. I finally found a spot for it having dug out some thuggish Inula which were swamping a border. I really like the deep crimson flowers and I think they stand out well against the burgandy Ligularia leaves in the background.
