Companion collection including Viridiflora Tulips and Peony Tulips. 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 with a dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Bernia mountains, 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.
