Special Award: EGPA, Second Place ” Tulip Dance”

Mixed tulips including Peony tulips in full bloom. The Iris Garden in Marnes, Plantas Distintas, Benissa on the Costa Blanca is so much more than an iris garden. Built on ancient almond and olive terraces Christine Lomer and Nick Brown have planted a ‘secret garden’. There are collections of salvias, buddlejas and species pelargoniums. There are also tulips, daffodils and a stunning collection of roses.
