Richard's Photo Gallery - Rosemoor

When Adam and Eve were dispossessed
Of the garden hard by heaven,
They planted another one down in the west,
'Twas Devon, glorious Devon!

- Harold Edwin Boulton

Mostly developed from a green field site by the River Torridge, Rosemoor has given the Royal Horticultural Society a free hand.

The cold, wet summer was doing few plants any favours but 'Rosa Escapade' lacked neither quality or quantity.

This was growing next to a label Aster 'Ringdove' but I think it is a lily (perhaps L.'Destiny'). Whatever, it is also a whopper.

This plant can be seen in the 'grasses' section. I think it is Phormium Tenax (a variety of flax) from New Zealand.
