A jaunt around the Duke’s Garden at Kew – the Arum Lilies in the last entry are to be found here, in some shade and immensely happy. As indeed are all the herbaceous plantings here. I remember the searing quality of the Hemerocallis Burning Daylight – brighter even than the Geums here and in great quantity – and the billowing white sheets of Romneya coulteri too – from last summer and seasons before that. Reasons enough to ensure this rather set-apart Walled Garden, behind the Grass Borders, is on your ‘must see’ list when you come to Kew next.
