A Welcoming Hedge

Perennial Combinations, Plant Combinations, Summer Borders


What a fabulous hedge! How not to fall in love with the delicate cascade of intensely fragrant, pink double rosettes of David Austin's English Rose 'Gertrude Jekyll' over the regular mix of the dark purple spikes of Sage 'Mainacht' or 'May Night' (Salvia x sylvestris), the lavender blooms of the Catmint 'Walker's Low' (Nepeta racemosa) and the bright yellow foliage of the Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis)?

All plants won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. Fragrant and easy to grow, they require little maintenance and will attract the energy of butterflies and hummingbirds. Most of them are deer and rabbit resistant too!

This soft and romantic plant combination has been brilliantly created by Denise Dering Design.
