Papaver somniferum 'Lauren's Grape'

Papaver somniferum Laurens GrapePapaver somniferum Laurens Grape 2

Papaver somniferum 'Lauren's Grape' introduced this year to Marwood's herbaceous borders, is a stunning poppy that always draws attention.

Heavy, silken, dark plum-purple cupped flowers sit majestically on tall stems set against grey-green foliage. They have been planted in bulk to drift naturally amidst the foliage and flowers of each border.

Now is the time to see them at their best.

 

On Wednesday 26th June we had an evening walk around the garden for our current season ticket holders. Macolm Pharoah led the garden tour, providing us with updates of new plantings and rare and unusual plants. This year, we were also lucky enough to have John and Libby Snowdon, the owners of Marwood Hill Garden join us on the walk, together with our gardeners. It was a beautiful summer evening, rounded off with tea and cakes!

 July 12th 2019 , Update on the astilbe flowering...

Astilbe 6

Not so flaming June has arrived, after a lovely start to the year. However, some of the larger shrubs and trees are now coming into their own - look out especially for the unusual Hankerchief tree, with its hankie-like flowers.

Plans are underway at Marwood Hill Garden to create an area to encourage butterflies. The ground is currently being prepared, with some annual planting underway and further planting planned for September. 

Unusual, colourful, spectacular - watch out for these on your visit this month.

Our cornus kousa are looking the best we can remember this year. Their bracts will stay for a few weeks yet - make sure you come and see them.

The gardens here change daily, especially at this time of year. Don't miss the candelabra primulas in the bog garden
