Iris forrestii

The first plant I took from the benches was this iris.  I purchased it as I. forrestii, but I think it is probably a hybrid.  I was very pleased to be able to exhibit it - it is beautiful.  I noticed the first of the four flowers opening on Friday morning.  By judging on Sunday, the last bud had just opened, but I was afraid the oldest flower would shrivel.

Hosta Blue Mouse Ears

Dave Kennedy won the Greenwood Trophy for the Novice section aggregate, winning two firsts including one for this hosta.

Aquilegia desertorum

Moving on to the Intermediate Section, Margaret and Tony Taziker exhibited this attractive yellow aquilegia, though I thought A. desertorum is normally orange and yellow, and this specimen appeared to be semi-double.

Helichrysum pagophilum

Still in the Intermediate Section, Gemma Hayes exhibited this magnificent cushion Helichrysum.

Serapias lingua

This lovely pan of Serapias was in Michael Myers' winning 6-pan entry, but was singled out for further distinction, winning the Charles Graham Trophy for the best plant in the Intermediate Section and the Hartside Trophy for the best plant in the Intermediate and Novice Sections.

As well as several pans of S. lingua, Michael Myers exhibited three other species; this is the first.
