Flowers in Ireland

I am just going to start uploading flower pictures from our trip to Ireland as I get them edited. Ireland correlates with hardiness zone 9 or 10 here, thanks to the Atlantic Ocean. That means lots of things that I can’t grow here in zone 5. We saw tons of roses in bloom while we were there.


I love the color of this rose:


Fuchsia, I think?



I’m not sure what this plant is, but the foliage is lovely.


More pictures to come this week as I work my way through the thousand pictures I took while there!

  1. Yes, those are fuchsias. They are very commonly grown as hanging container plants in California, though they aren’t a native variety. We do have native fuchsias, but they don’t have those great large hanging flowers, they are a bushy perennial. TMI!

    My husband and I just got back from a trip to England, so I’m waiting with bated breath for your report! He absolutely hated the little driving he had to do, we mostly did trains(which were fantastic). Guided tours aren’t so bad if you can find one of the smaller van-based tours, usually no more than 12 people. We did one in the south of England out of Bath and saw more in that day than we possibly could have on our own by driving.

    1. These fuchsias were on a big bush, so I wasn’t completely sure that is what they are. I need to find out what that colorful foliage is, though. Maybe it will be hardy in my zone!
