Got to love watching the flowers of Cortaderia aureolineata unfurl day by day. Also enjoy  looking at Panicum.....unsure which.....move in the breeze.

And then it is the time of year this little hardy Geranium flowers think it is G.thunbergii. Great ground cover. Compare with the stones and you see the how small the flowers are, so pretty.

Just back from a few days in Tramore and of course this included a visit to Mt Congreve. As the Cor.k branch of IGPS are heading there tomorrow I am posting only a couple of photos. I am sure we will get some much better ones from their photographers. We were blessed with great weather for the three days and the garden was looking wonderful. They  must feed the plants on steroids!! Eupatoriums so tall, Eucomis enormous and monster Dahlias. I spotted a Dahlia in the sales area , a must have. It was labelled Bishop of Canterbury a wonderful copper/orange, my photo does not do it justice.  BUT following a Google I think it is in fact Bishop of Oxford and welcome comments about ID. Vicki in sales headed out and found me two more so I am a very happy Bunny

IDs please

The Kniphofia was growing in a friends garden for years and then came to live here for about anothe 5 years. This year it produced a flower. I know there are many different varieties but wonder if anyone can identify this.

The other photo is a weird plant with greenish spikes showing no indication of flowering.
