Cambridge University Botanics Mountain Plants Diary
This entry: June 2013, New to our collection by Helen Seal with photos by Simon Wallis
Our collection of plants is constantly changing. Here are some which we have raised form seed and are flowering for the first time.
Incarvillea forrestii with the paler Incarvillea delavayi 'Bee's Pink' behind
Spot the aphid!
These are also new to our collection, but came as small plants from specialist nurseries.
Phlox adsurgens, P.a.'Wagon Wheel', and P.a. 'Alba'
The loveliest of all Phlox adsurgens. Shall we trial it in the rock garden?
Erodium corsicum grows on the rock garden at Kew, so we will trial this too.
A young Dianthus 'Eileen Lever' showing her flowering potential.
Leontopodium alpinum has proved hard to keep in the past. Will we be more successful with this one?
