THE HOT GARDEN

The Hot Garden at RHS Garden Rosemoor in North Devon displays plants in the hot colour range. At the heart of the garden is a meadow-like expanse of flowering perennials and grasses punctuated by a more limited number of trees and shrubs bearing purple or yellow foliage. The impact of massed planting can be appreciated from a viewing terrace overlooking the sloping site while a network of paths allows visitors to immerse themselves in the plants and study their individual qualities at close hand.
