May Joy.

Our garden@19, in May, was cloaked in the joy of May flowers, starting with the Wisteria floribunda ‘Alba’ …

Clematis ‘Nelly Moser’
Allium ‘Beau Regard’
Allium Mount Everest with White Honesty.
The Blue Border with Allium ‘Purple Sensation ‘.
Iris ‘Alcazar’.
Hesperis matronalis ‘White’
Prunus ‘serrula’ our mug tree.

These pictures were taken just before our NGS May opening, when 77 visitors came on a Tuesday. We are now preparing for our next opening on Monday June 17th.

  1. Wow, I never see Wisteria florbunda ‘Alba’ anymore! When I got my Kentucky wisteria, I was pleased to find that it has a white cultivar too, although they are nothing like Japanese wisteria, or Chinese wisteria.

  2. The alliums look wonderful – at their peak for your opening! Iris Alcazar is interesting – you may have solved the mystery of an ‘unnamed Iris’ in a friend’s garden. Hope weather is kind for your next open day.

  3. All looks lovely, Brian – and you will have roses now too. Any dahlias yet? I love your white wisteria, and hope to create a space for one some say, somewhere in the garden… Hope the openings go well

      1. After the rain we are due some higher temperatures, so that should be good for them, if the rain doesn’t flatten them!

  4. Oh your garden is looking fabulous Brian. Love the white wisteria and alliums. Hope that all goes well with the next opening and the weather perks up before then. The residents of Hanley Swan and visitors from further afield will be in for a veritable treat!

  5. You have managed to grow one of the nicest wisterias….beautifully pruned and with lots of lovely panicles in white. The whole garden shows a wonderful harmonious colour theme…lucky visitors.
