Hyde Park - A Royal Park (Part 1)Hyde Park - A Royal Park (Part 1)
April 12, 2011

Hyde Park is the largest green space in central London at just over 350 acres. It is now famous for the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, and other things associated with Princess Diana. However its history is immense as it is known to go back before the Norman invasion in 1066. King Henry VIII then got the land off the canons of Westminster Abbey in 1536 and kept it as a deer park and hunting ground for himself. King Charles I in 1637 finally opened it to the public. It also hosted the Great Exhibition in 1851 in the infamous Crystal Palace. This was then moved to Sydenham Hill in southeast London; and the area became known as Crystal Palace. The Crystal Palace burnt down on November 30th, 1936 Please come with me on a walk around one of London's Great Royal Parks.

This plant has thrived in poor soil and part-sun in my garden. It makes a great border plant; the purple leaves are a great accent to many other plants nearby. No insect or disease problems, making this a carefree plant.

There is another version called Purple Palace Select, supposed to have improved vigor and color.
