Nandina. Not for the faint hearted.

Lobelia abadarica, Pittosporum 'Golf Ball' and Helichrysum in a gorgeous combination at Woodbridge garden in Coatesville.

Blood lily, from South Africa. After flowering the strappy leaves form. Looks very prehistoric in the garden.

Strobilanthes dyeriana, stunning colours

Michelia maudiaii Flowers for about a month and the scent is pure heaven.

Ligularia 'Britt Marie Crawford'. These were planted in pots in the garden so they stood tall and didn't flop everywhere, good idea.

Hydrangea quercifolia with the leaves starting to turn in autumn.

Hydrangea 'Merville Sanguine' in my garden is a vivid purple as opposed to the dark red it should be. Still striking though.

Il Castello di Pralormo (TO)
