Fresh from Courson, three noteworthy flowers to amaze and inspire… The first is the “Honey Dijon” rose, from the Rosiers de Saint-Aubin. In the feast of colour that is Courson, it is particularly eye-catching due to its stunning lack of colour: it seems to be a sepia print of a rose…
The second is a particularly lush and lippy dogwood blossom, the Cornus Kousa ‘Venus’ from Eberts.
And last but not least, the most enormous protea I have ever seen: the Protea cyranoides “little prince”. Far from little, it measures 1 foot, or 30 centimetres across.
Three continents–Europe, Asia and Africa–in three flowers!
