Kniphofia rooperi

Another personal favourite is this huge, late poker. Ten years ago I had a large clump which produced over 30 flowers each year, but eventually it became too congested and the crowns rotted over winter.

Wildflower meadow

This year the area at the top of the garden outside the Hillside Events Centre, where the old glass house used to stand, has been planted as a wildflower meadow. It must have been magnificent all summer, to judge by the number of seedheads, but retains a more subtle beauty as autumn takes hold.

Pansies

Finally, in the images from the previous week I showed pansies being planted lower down in the garden. Tens of thousands of pansies have descended on Wisley in flocks, like starlings, and the bed outside the events centre is full of them.
