Mr and Mrs Bream. national collection of Roscoeas spread around a 1 acre garden, Stevenshill , Shropshire.
Mr Bream showed me around and pointed out variations in different plants from the collection. Near the entrance, where he stands some of the pots in the shade, Roscoea scillifolia pink form had seeded itself into the gravel.
Three types growing in large pots which get protection in the winter.
Usually they are bone hardy in the soil, with a thick mulch of compost.
By the pond.
One of his own seedlings , probably a ghurka/purpurea cross.
