  1. I’ve never seen these two together but they make a handsome match. (In truth, I’ve never seen the Berkheya purpurea at all.) Do you know the chartreuse plumes? They provide the perfect contrast.

  2. Stunningly beautiful. Thanks, it’s a great to see one of Hitchmough’s deft naturalistic designs showcased for a change.

    • It’s wonderful and works for a long period. I love the colours too. I’ve been meaning to try growing Berkheya since seeing this meadow a couple of years ago, but I wasn’t sure it would overwinter.

    Beautiful meadow flowers. I saw this Dianthus used to great effect in Tom Stuart – Smith’ s garden.
