What plant is that?

Purple alliums in the rose garden at Greys Court

Have you seen a plant in our gardens and would like to know what it is? Our knowledgeable garden volunteers can help you identify it.

Lady Brunner began to restore the overgrown garden after she and Sir Felix bought Greys Court in 1937.  We try to keep as true to the spirit of her garden as we possibly can.The Brunners had four sons and developed this as a family garden, not a botanical show garden.  To keep faith with that, very few of the plants are labelled today.
