Buxus Parterres

Buxus Parterres: mid-summer colour at Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand. 05 Feb 2022. The parterres and colour beds were looking magnificent!


Between the parterres and the public pathway are the colour beds – in this first photo you can see (from right – left) the red, yellow and purple/mauve colour beds. Click on any photo below to enlarge.

A white colour bed is beyond the parterre and on the other side of the pathway is the long border.

      1. Well, that page was lovely, but it used ‘parterre’ multiple times without defining it, so I went off to the dictionary and found it defined as “a level space in a garden or yard occupied by an ornamental arrangement of flower beds.” OK, then!
