Key plants in The Cotswold Garden

The colour scheme has a backbone made up of green and white, with splashes of colour throughout, yellow, orange and deep red. The overall style is soft and textural, contrasting with the hard landscaping.

Luzula nivea

An early flowering grass, that also provides plenty of lush growth in the spring.

Taxus baccata

Yew balls, providing all year round structure.

Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Ravenswing’

A beautiful purple form of cow parsley, adds a delicateness to the planting, and works well linking the planting to the meadow.

Physocarpus opulifolius ‘Diabolo’

The foliage is used to pick up the deep red flower colour used within the border planting, it also provides some mid-range structural height to the planting.

Geum‘Mai Tai’

Free flowering, provides little punches of colour to the scheme.
