Planting Design, Wildflowers

Impressionist Garden

The annual wildflower meadow at Trentham Gardens in Staffordshire reached an autumn crescendo last week: swathes of red and yellow Coreopsis, dotted with blue cornflowers, white umbellifers and statuesque Red Orach, combining to create a rich tapestry of colour and texture.

The overall view was reminiscent of the great paintings of the Impressionist period – a sea of coloured dots sparkling in the late afternoon light. Breathtaking!
