Holehird Gardens in June: 3 things to look out for when you visit:

  1. Varieties of cornus kousa, such as this cornus kousa var. chinensis, planted to give early season colour to the hydrangea beds, are looking better than ever.
  2. You can't miss the National Collection of meconopsis, large blue Himalayan poppies, at their best just now.  But seek out also the unusual yellow variety, meconopsis sulphurea, at the top of the rock garden.
  3. Crinodendron hookerianum, with its glossy leaves and red lantern flowers, appears a few times in the Gardens, but you'll see it first gracing the wall in the car park.
