About the Flowery Meadow
Native wildflowers are planted alongside ornamentals to create a naturalistic looking flowery meadow, providing nectar for pollinators, seedheads for birds and insects, and shelter for wildlife throughout the year. We love to watch it changing through the seasons.
Geranium pratense is a native wildflower of meadows, grasslands and roadside verges. It has striking bluish-purple flowers throughout the summer. Pollinators love this plant.
Lychnis flos-cuculi is a lovely wee, somewhat disheveled, flower which looks stunning in a mass and is a reminder of walks in the boggy Scottish countryside. Pollinators love this plant.
Devil’s bit scabious
Succia pratensis flowers in late summer through to September, with purple-blue flowers that resemble pincushions. Pollinators love this plant.
