Flowers & Flowering Shrubs

Cherry Blossom

As well as cultivating flowers and shrubs in the garden, we allow much of it to grow wild with carpets of wild flowers appearing in springtime. The flowers below are a complete record of those we have found and photographed in the garden.

Click on the alphabetic links to find the flowers by name. Alternatively, click on the wild flower, garden flowers and flowering shrubs links to see them listed in their respective category.

Click on the flower links to find out more about these beautiful flowers and shrubs. We have included photographs not only to show how pretty these flowers can be, but in many cases to show the leaves and whole plant to help you identify them.

Finally, please take a look at our flower gallery which showcases some of the best flower photographs.
