Maple Glen Pink

As we explored Maple Glen Gardens on 26 January 2019 I was surprised how much pink I came across in the gardens. I don’t think we’ve visited at this time of year before and it looked quite different – the bright dahlias that I’ve already posted about and all these pink flowers that I found further on in our walk.

I was drawn to the shape, colour and texture of these Rodgersia leaves. My next Maple Glen post will have more Rodgersia photos

    1. I don’t remember about pollinators on the pink plumes. From my Yellow And Mauve post there were lots of pollinators on the mounds of mauve Erica (heather), and quite a few around the vicinity of the yellow thistle-flowers.

  1. Lovely! Your pictures remind me of many Scottish gardens – the conditions must be very similar. The swathes of pink are astilbes, which we used to grow when we lived in Scotland. I miss them, so it’s a happy reminder to see them here. 🙂
