Wildflower Meadow at Trentham Gardens

Coreopsis in a wildflower meadow at Trentham Gardens

Coreopsis flowers paint Trentham Garden’s wildflower meadow yellow even as the night draws in. There’s no such thing as a dull day with these around!

    1. I wouldn’t have predicted this mix, but it is very cheerful. The other flowers (mainly cornflowers and Queen Anne’s Lace) play a great supporting role.

    1. I’m not sure these count as wild as a swathe has been planted in a garden, although I suppose if they naturalise they would be wildish. You’ve set me off wondering whether weeds are weeds if planted on purpose… I suppose they are, but I have so often heard ‘a weed is a plant out of place’ that it gives me pause. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t see coreopsis as weeds, but I know some people do.
