The Hot Border

Flowering from early June and really hitting its stride from late June the Hot Border is a blaze of reds, yellows, oranges counterpointed here and there by some strong purples. Planted up in 2010-11, the borders are filled with hardy perennials, grasses and shrubs, backed by copper beech hedges. Long flowering perennials such as Helenium ‘Moerheim Beauty’, Anthemis tinctoria ‘E.C. Buxton’, Potentilla ‘Gibson’s Scarlet’, Persicaria affinis ‘Darjeeling Red’, and Salvia nemerosa ‘Lubeca’ mix with Miscanthus sinensis ‘Silberfeder’ creating a spectacle running the length of the Garden.
