Summer flowers from Ray Wood


Perhaps the finest of summer-flowering trees, Aesculus indica 'Sydney Pearce' is now in full bloom. It's resistant to both bleeding canker and leaf miner, so should be the horse-chestnut of choice for future plantings.

Silky-soft flowers of Stewartia ovata.

Roy Lancaster's collection of Philadelphus delavayi, L905, collected in Shaanxi, 1981.

Opulent but ephemeral - Magnolia officinalis.

Rosa moyesii 'Geranium'

  1. I love Rosa moyesii. Mine has made a small tree and it looks fantastic.
    I have just been given a single (unrooted) cutting of R.m. 'Geranium'. Lots of crossed fingers
