Floral tapestry

Astrantia in a perennial border

Friday photo: Astrantia (common name masterwort) creates a highlight against a colourful, living tapestry of flowers in a large perennial border.

Picture taken at The Savill Garden. This ornamental garden is part of The Royal Landscape, over 1,000 acres of gardens, lakes and woodlands, not far from Windsor Castle. The Savill Garden has one of the most interesting contemporary rose garden designs in England. Beautifully maintained, fragrant shrub roses are displayed in large groups of the same variety, creating a geometric swirl pattern. Visitors can wander through the garden and also enjoy the whole perspective from a raised walkway.
