Colour on the Terrace

These summer borders are teeming with colourful flowers, including Monarda, Nepeta, Achillea and Artemesia.

 

The Tudor Knott Garden

The pool is surrounded by a selection of plants including citrus trees and Galtonia Candicans.

 

Lilies

The Goliath Lily Honeymoon - how romantic!

The Goliath lilies are a fantastic contrast here, with the Agapanthus in the foreground.

 

Old China Blush Rose 


This rose grows at the front of the house, around the corner from the rose walk terrace. This rose is very old and very long flowering, blooming almost all year round. The perfect place for a tranquil seat.

 

This is but a small selection of the plants in bloom at Dalemain. Please visit our historic gardens 10.30-5 on Sunday - Thursday to see them in all their beauty.
