Twelve Months of Scottish Flowers

Here are the flowers which have been used to illustrate the section of the weekly Scottish Newsletter which includes the photos of flowers and other plants taken during the month of December.

This illustration of December flowers in Scotland is of heather growing in a pedestrian precinct on the outskirts of Glasgow. The fact that it is still flowering so well at this time of year demonstrates one reason why this versatile plant is so popular. There are varieties which come into bloom at different seasons throughout the year.
This winter flowering pansy was seen growing in the pedestrian precinct of Milngavie (pronounced "Millguy") town centre, north of Glasgow.

In the dull days of winter, the bright evergreen (and cream!) foliage of this Eunonymous shrub is very welcome to lighten the gloom. This type of plant is becoming increasingly popular as it provides a splash of colour throughout the year and there are a number of different varieties.
The illustration here is of an acer, growing in a wood near Glasgow. The fiery leaves shone out in the shady gloom.

This illustration is of the dried flower heads of some hogweed with a heavy covering frost on them as winter really starts to make its presence felt.
Cyclamen are often seen as indoor plants in centrally heated houses in Scotland. This one was under glass in a conservatory in Glasgow.
