Lovely blooms Berghill - I particularly like the last one.  Roscoea, a new species on me.  Are they easy to grow or more importantly, are they hardy?   


Roscoea are very hardy. Most of mine are either still underground or in the case of R. cautleyoides kew beauty, just through. I have nothing in flower yet. That early purple is certainly early.  The hardest thing in growing them is to mark them so that you don't stick a fork through them early in the season. It means delicate hand weeding around them.


Thanks for that fidgetbones.  I must give one a try.


Lovely photos as always Berghill.  Nice to see so much of your garden in bloom. I love the little saxifrages   

We're a bit behind up here, but the drier, milder winter has brought a few things on earlier. My Niobe has just opened the first flower - a couple of weeks earlier than usual. Must get out with the camera.
