Looking for a splash of colour in the border? Trollius chinensis ‘Gold Queen’ could be the plant you are looking for. An herbaceous perennial growing to a height of 1.3m. The terminal cup shaped bright orange sepals surround the narrow mass of petals, a floral extravaganza. Also in flower is Ligustrum delavayanum, producing panicles of miniature, white, highly scented flowers. This multibranched evergreen “Privet” is found growing through Asia. Flowering as a timely reminder that when walking around suburbia the yet to be cut Privet hedges will also be full of pollinating insects making the most of these flowers. On warm still days the scent fills the gardens and pavements about them. One good reason to put off the inevitable and enjoy Wimbledon.
