Iris Immortality

What a fine iris bloom to find after days of rain ! I resisted this offering - they never do well for me.

Helionopsis helianthoides

I was tempted by this sunflower relative though; it looks a little more compact than some of the unruly ones I grow.

Anemone hupehensis

There was a lovely display of Anemone hupehensis cultivars though, primarily Praecox and Pretty Lady Diana

Montbretia and Rudbeckia

This display of montbretia and rudbeckia was eye-catching as well.

Clematis Princess Kate

The stand-out plant in the plant centre for me was this clematis; an outstanding new cultivar, sadly with price to match.

I would like to end by thanking Paul Cumbleton and his team in the alpine area, and indeed all the gardeners at Wisley for making the garden such a pleasure to visit throughout the year. It can't be easy producing a display which looks so good at the end of September, after a month's worth of rain in four days.
