Enkianthus campanulatus

This season the Enkianthus campanulatus have flowered prolifically. This, a result of a long warm spring preceded by a hot dry summer ripening the wood. The show does not end with the falling of the flowers; the soil around the base of the deciduous multi stemmed shrub is layered in creamy white pearls, the fallen fused petals that make up the corolla. A native to Japan, now a firm addition to woodland gardens throughout Britain.
