Long Walk – Colour Borders

Long Walk - Colour Borders at Waterperry Gardens

These colour co-ordinated mixed borders make use of perennials, shrubs, bedding and bulbs to give all year round colour and interest. Notable plants here are Callicarpa ‘Profusion’, a collection of Buddleia davidii and Sambucus ‘Black Beauty’. In the silver leaf area you can see Atriplex halimus, Cardoons and Salix argentea. In season Dahlias such as ‘Bloodstone’, ‘Lilactime’ and ‘Bishop of Llandaff ’ and bedding plants Verbena ‘La France’, Tagetes ‘Jolly Jester’ and Rudbeckias add to the riot of colour in these 100m long double borders.
