    1. Greetings from the southeastern US. My favorite is always something that I cannot have; Rodgersia Pinnata ‘Maurice Mason’ with its preference for cool, shady, damp places would not be happy in our N. Carolina hot humid dry summers. But, that’s why I come to your yard to visit and enjoy.

      1. Hi Marilyn, Thank you for your comment! The Rodgersia pinnata ‘Maurice Mason’ is gorgeous! it is a shame that you can not have this in your garden but this means that you have an excuse to visit Gravetye Manor again. – Georgia

  1. Cosmos Daydream looked fresh and flowering so well when I visited for lunch yesterday. Dahlias and Salvia Amistad were amazing too.
    Garden looked wonderful for so late in the year and after the hot summer.

  2. ‘Daydream’ cosmos, although I too like the ‘Magenta Star’ dahlia. I am not familiar with the ‘Maurice Mason’ Rodgersia pinnata, and I am none too keen on the Miscanthus guisantes. That narrows down the choices for me.

    1. Hi Tony, Its great to hear your opinion on your favourite Plants! You will have to keep your eyes peeled for our next favourite plants to see if you find any more that you like. – Georgia
