If you like flowers, you may like to see some of the flora and fauna from my North Wales garden.
I ‘collect’ photographs of the plants that grow, and share them here.
Sometimes they are displayed in pots made by me, Linda John.
Echeveria is a large genus of succulents from the Crassulaceae family, and Echeveria elegans, although a native of the rocky regions of Mexico, is especially suited to the British climate. With winter protection it can be grown for a large part of the year outside in a border, or container.
Verbena Bonariensis is a tall hardy perennial which has become very popular in those gardens hoping to encourage beneficial insects.
Acanthus mollis, like it’s relative Acanthus spinosus, grows from an underground rhizome. The leaves of the plants grown some gardens are more rounded, and named from the Latin mollis meaning ‘smooth’ or ‘soft’.
