Hidcote Manor and Kiftsgate Court Visit

If you like gardens, these two are well worth a visit, it's especially good to visit them the same day. They can't be compared, they are very different, both fabulous, and so conveniently close together. It's well worth checking opening times for Kiftsgate a house in private ownership, and not open every day like Hidcote.
At Hidcote, there were orange, 'hot' borders, but the top flowers were to be found on Hydrangea aspera Villosa, just look at the colours and form of the flowers:


There were reds:

 Glorious Dahlias:
And on to Kiftsgate where the beauty of the house, terraces and massive planters were breathtaking:






And finally a bright yellow plant with dark leaves among the fairly pinky purple hues. I wonder what it's called?
