South: green area
To the left of the garage is a patch of grasses and four Rowans. By the fence is S. eburnea up which is climbing another of the original plants; the Redhall rose, for which we'd welcome an identification.
To the right of this is a triple-stemmed S. rosea which is now marketed as S. 'Rosiness'. Next to the gate is one of several examples of S. frutescens and tucked awayin the corner is S. californica which I think is the best orange-berried rowan of all.
To the right of the garage is an area which is mainly used for Irises as it is the most southerly aspect we have.
On the garage wall is Parthenocissus henryana with Chamaecyparis lawsonian elwoodii and 'Snow in Summer' in the corner. In front of these are yellow irises including 'Holden Clough' and three bearded iris.
The conifer in the larger of the cuboid planters is Juniperus meyerii which is being trained in the bonzai, semi-cascade style. Behind the cuboid planters are Abies balsamifera prostrata, Juniper communis depressa aurea and Salix boydii. Behind this, on the fence, is Wisteria x 'Caroline'.
The Box in the corner is another of the original Redhall plants although we've moved it about twelve feet East of its original position. Below this is a Juniper 'Grey Owl' and Juniperus horizontalis 'Blue Carpet'.
Looking from the Box, the fence side is planted with Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace' behind the Pyrus salicifolia pendula, Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion', Vibernum bodnantense 'Dawn', Cotinus 'Grace' behind S. microphylla, and Daphne bholua. In front of these is a selection of Astrantia major cultivars and crosses.
The Ash at the corner has a rose, 'Souvenir du Dr. Jamain', climbing up it.
The round planters have Glendoick's red-leaved Rhododendrons in them. The larger planter contains Rh. 'Wine and Roses' with the red under-leaf and the smaller has Rh. 'Ever Red'.
Behind the planters is a group of roses including 'Heritage', 'Single Promise', 'Rhapsody in Blue', 'William Lobb' and 'Cardinal de Richelieu'.
To the left of the roses is a group of Peonies including the white tree Peony, 'King of White Lion', (Paeonia suffruticosa 'Hakuojisi'), and the herbaceous peonies 'Sarah Bernheardt' and 'Lady Alexandra Duff'.
In the middle of the bed is a pyramid supporting a sweet pea, usually L. odoratus 'Matucana' which supposedly dates back to 1543 or L. odoratus 'Cupani' which probably does date back to Fr. Cupani's introduction of 1699. [1 ], and the mangetout pea, 'Carouby de Maussane'.
The rest of this area is planted with the black iris, I. crysographes, various geraniums, Iris 'Sybil', Papaver orientale 'Patties Plum', 'Harlem' and 'Papillon' and groups of the dusty pink, hybrid Mecanopsis, M. x cookeii.
At the left hand side of the track there are several Budleja's including B. davidii 'Harlequin', 'Black Knight', 'Summer Beauty' and B. fallowiana 'LochInch' together with Rosa 'Ispahan'. In front of these are a number of Astrantia major including 'Roma' and seedlings of 'Hadspen Blood' amd other pink/red varieties.
