A very warm welcome from Rugg Farm

Last night’s glorious balmy weather was perfect for this garden visit where we were wowed by the organic metal work of Andy Stevenson (http://www.andystevensongardensculpture.co.uk/) and a beds full of splendid plants (complete with labelled planting plans).

Some plants that caught my attention included:

Melica uniflora ‘Albida’ – dainty ornamental grass
Clematis ‘Betty Corning’
Nepeta ‘Blue Dragon’ – very upright with large dark blue flowers
Verbena ‘Bampton’
Cenolophium denudatum – a white umberlifera for shady beds
Deschampsia ‘Northern Lights’ – another dainty ornamental grass (medium height)
Penisetum virdescens – dainty ornamental grass
Albizia julibrissin – dainty exotic looking small tree
Clematis ‘Alionushka’ / ‘Polish Spirit’ / ‘Margot Koster’ / ‘Countess of Albemarle’
Teucrium hircanicum ‘Purple Tails’
