Class 3: view of a grouping of Alpine plants in a garden setting for effective association of colour or foliage, brief description to be included

Entries: 7
Entry by Paul Lewis

Bold but effective colour combination on the raised bed rock garden.
In this image the sharp magenta of Primula pubescens 'Boothman's Variety' combines well with the deep blue of Veronica armena. Further contrast is provided with the deep blood red tones of the foliage of Sedum 'Voodoo' in the background.

Part of wodland raised bed including a large leafed Rhododendron, Primula florindae, Meconopsis chelidonifolia, Meconopsis sheldonii,(?) Lilium (unknown cultivar)

Grouping of Alpines
Ptilotrichum spinosum, Saponaria Oleivana, Campanula sp. (still in leaf), Erinus alpinus blending naturally in the garden.

Entry by Hilary Birks

Rhododendron bed
The spectacular hot colours of the Rhododendrons are offset by the brilliant Meconopsis just starting to open.

Entry by Ken Curtis

Late Spring in the Sun
Alyssum handelii, Phacelia serica, Dracocephalum grandiflorum, Lamium garganica, Phlox 'Crackerjack' and scattered all about and looking like a pink tulip is Pulsatilla jarmilae from a Josef Halda seed collection.

Judge's comment: Voted the best entry of a group of more than one variety of plant in a garden setting or in a container such as a trough
Entry by Michael and Caryl Baron

Troughs amidst various plantings in the gravel surrounds
Smaller alpines including Helianthemum, Dianthus, Campanula, Saxifragas and Gentiana paradoxa are in the troughs. Ferns; Asplenium and Dryopteris wallachiana are planted under the edges of the troughs for greater protection. Pinus mugo 'Mops' in the background.

A cluster of rhodohypoxis cultivars brighten the steps in summer.
