There are still some roses in the old rose garden at Great Dixter. He liked roses, just not as monoculture and it's true taht growing to many together invites pests and diseases.
I have Teasing Georgia, Sceptr'd Isle and Generous Gardener roses still flowering well. Clematis Princess Diana, Sunset, Nelly Moser and Rahvarinne have flowers on them too. I have a home sown white agapanthus which is flowering strongly and pots of acidanthera and persicarias, rudbeckias, Japanese anemones, pensemons and verbena bonariensis if flower..
More seasonal stuff is the winter flowering jasmine and hardy cyclamen plus, as I found today, the first of the snowdrops are out.
No doubt tomorrow I'll find more in flower when I tackle other parts of the garden - in between baking chocolate cake and biscuits for our Viennese waltz class in the afternoon..
