Postcard from Hampton Court: Thursday

Plant combination of the week goes to The Stone Roses Garden, designed by Stephen Reilly and Donna Taplin(small garden: silver-gilt)

Dreamy and feminine, but with just the right notes of earthy purple, and those roses were sumptuous: it's not often I like pink roses but for these, I would make an exception.

Rosa 'Burgundy Ice'
Stipa tenuissima
Astelia 'Silver Spear'
Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Tom Thumb'
Verbena bonariensis
Acanthus spinosus
Betula ermanii

I thought so too :D the rose is a sport of the popular 'Iceberg', apparently - and hopefully just as reliable. It's lovely.
