More lovely plant pictures from Philip Simmonds

Philip has just sent a few more photos from his Chelsea garden:

Below is the wonderful Ligusticum lucidum – a feathery fennel like leaf shape, with Hosta ‘fire and ice’ behind and the lovely grass Luzula nivaea on the right



Below is a similar combination, this time with the delightful Verbascum ‘Merlin’ the dusky pink central plant with Hosta ‘fire and ice’ behind. The taller red stems of the Angelica Archangelica are visible in the background and the floaty white flower of Luzula nivaea again. The Hosta to the front right is Hosta Devon Green, and the slim floaty grass is Festuca amethystina.



Below, against the wonderful colour of Philips’ stunning piece, is Veronica gentianoides on the left, with Luzula nivaea on the right. You can also see a close up of the wonderful sawn stone which tones so beautifully with the ceramics.



Below you can see the tall shapes of the elegant Angelica archangelica, underplanted with Hosta Devon Green, Luzula and Iris sibirica
