Learning Plant Names

Posted by Rosemoor Garden on 31 Jul 2009 at 03:19 PM


Hello, my name is James and I volunteer at Rosemoor every Friday and I help my best friend, Penny. Also, I help other gardeners and work with the Maintenance Team. One of my favourite things is learning plant names.

Every week I take a photo of a plant and learn the name. Then I add it to my portfolio. I look at my gardening books at the weekends to find out information and look at pictures.

The plant I am learning about this week is Aeonium as I like the purple leaves. It belongs to the family Crassulaceae

You can see these plants in the Stone Garden of Lady Anne’s at this time of the year. We will take them in before the first frosts and will over-winter them in a frost-free greenhouse.
