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!

  1. Gorgeous photographs. Dogwood “flowers” are actually modified leaves or bracts. The actual flower (cluster of flowers) is the knobby element in the center of the white bracts.

  2. Stunning flowers! The rose really dose resemble a sepia print.
