Area 7 – Reticulata Section

 

Area 7 – Notes.

This is a very steep area where getting plants established without falling over has clearly been a problem, with several plants lying on their sides, usually downhill. Two or three others were badly damaged by a falling tree rhododendron in 2016.

‘Diamond Head’, 7-010, appears to be C. x williamsii ‘Ballet Queen Variegated’. It may have been the variety used as a rootstock but seems an odd choice.

‘Forty-niner’, 7-014. This is incorrect, it should be a peony form brilliant red.

‘Hody Wilson’, 7-026. All that remains of this is sasanqua stock.
