Different, but I like it.
This area of Pesicaria is at the back of one of the borders in the 'Bend' area.
You way remember I mentioned this in a journal ages ago, that I was planting Persicaria (a low growing plant) at the back of a border.
Strange, but I like the way it's working. The plants to the front are not going to be too high and you will be able to see through them. Also the Persicaria can be seen easily from another position.
I planted Lillies between the Persicaria, they are just opening now. Smaller than espected, but maybe that's going to work even better.
The splash of pink in the Lily matches the pink of the Persicaria perfectly.
but I like it ;-))

These poppies are bulking up lovely, plenty more buds on the way.

The first of this plants has just opened. It looks as if it's going to be a good year for them.
There is one that is growing well but has not flower since I got it, H. Fran's Hal. Would anyone have a reason why. It's close to others that are doing well so it's not over shaded or the like.

Dryopteris erythrosara 'Brillance'
I thought I had lost this fern last year, but me been one always willing to give things the extra chance potted it for the winter.
Happy days it seems to be ok, I'll keep it potted for this year.
It's new growth is this colour, turn to green as it ages. It keeps producing new growth so you end up with a mixture of colours and great interest.
