Raised ericaeceous bed in May
This is a raised bed which features an Acer palmatum that has developed a prostrate branch that covers the wall and hangs down over it. In the foreground is Euphorbia amygdaloides purpurea planted for its red stems and to cover the wall. The seasons begin with a ground cover of Dicentra Bacchanal and a red Camelia both of which are past their best in the photo. In the background are two Azalea occidentalis and to the left is Azalea Persil. Below the Persil is a dwarf deep red Rhododendron just coming into flower.
