Flower Report for July 31, 2014

The garden beds are at their fullest and most colourful as the summer display continues at its peak. The Rose Garden continues to get rave reviews, even as the rambling roses that cover the pathways near the end of their blooming season. The dahlias are growing by leaps and bounds and each week they continue to produce more blooms. As seen in the list below, the perennial borders provide us with a vast array of exceptional colours, forms and textures to further enhance the visual feast. Around various buildings and patio areas you will also find a spectacular collection of hanging baskets, window boxes and container plantings that complement and add to the overall experience.
