Mind I like Roscoeas. Think this is cautleoides.

And I have one or three Alliums too.



Allium schubertii, or is it cuthbertii? Never can remember.

This is supposed to be either very pale pink, almost white or yellow, depending on which Antirrhinum species it is. Obviously it did not read the books.



It is a perennial one too.

Doubt there will be any Hepaticas on show on Sunday. Wrong season.


Dianthus and Campanulas are the most likely to be in flower at this time of year.


This is not really a show as such it is more an opportunity for people to see that Alpines are not difficult or rare or hard to grow or come by. They are for everyone. Ideal plants for the smaller gardens of today as you can fit an awful of them into a smaller space. AND, they are not al Spring flowering things either.
