Linnaeus’ Flower Beds

The flowerbed in front of the manor. In the foreground is a blooming alpine delphinium, Delphinium elatum.To the left, a purple clematis, Clematis viticella is klimbing up the facade. In the background is the Eastern wing with its green turf roof, and high leafy trees.

In front of the main house are two flower beds, one on either side of the door. They have been recreated from a sketch made by Linnaeus himself in the 1760s, showing which plants were grown here and how they were arranged in the beds.
