Surrounding the house
The slope down from Old Tennis Court (where Food Jam takes place in the summer) features an avenue of cherry trees, leading down to the lawn on the south-side of Enys. A formal lawn area, where the centerpiece is circular lavender bed encased by a rose arch, displays climbing scented roses in pastel colours.
The surrounding beds feature mostly summer flowers, such as Verbena bonariensis, Kniphofia, Nepeta and Eryngiums.
In the spring you can enjoy colour by Tulipa ‘Spring Green’, The Enys daffodil, Muscari.
The east lawn (of the house) features over 3000 Fritillaria meleagris in early April, before the Bluebell display takes over.
The main drive to Enys
You will see an avenue of lime trees on one side and recently-planted Betula utilis var.jacquemontii, with its striking white bark. Below these you can spot a row of daffodils in the spring.
Further towards the house you will see Rhododendron and a lot of shade-loving plants such as Pulmonaria, Helleborus, Brunnera. At the top of the bank you can spot a Persicaria ‘Red Dragon’. Its dark purple leaves are easily spotted when the sun creeps over the bank and shines through the leaves, making them glow.
