From here, we leave the Family Beds borders and step into the Rock Garden (bypassing the superb Salvia Borders are there is still a long way to go before they look at their best – October at least)
First, this extravagant show of seedheads which at first I took for Pulsatilla…
Mountain Avens – Dryas octopetala (Rosaceae)
Which leads us back into the outer borders of the Woodland gardens (beneath the Mount and Temple of Aeolus) and to the Lake (in front of the Palm House) and out (past the ducks…)
An hour well spent, methinks, with some unusual plants that deserve further investigation I think now…
By the lake, this splendid specimen of Thalictrum… and this Melianthus major
One thought on “Q… K for Kew – an hour through the woodland, family beds and rock garden…”
Wonderful photos of the dryas octopetala seedheads! All the photos are great but those really caught my eye.
