Trillium hibbersonii

Vic Aspland exhibited this fine specimen of T. hibbersonii.  A bit of a struggle to get a picture, particularly with it slightly low in its pot, but I wanted to try.

Intermediate six pan

Colin and Kathleen Billington entered the Intermediate six-pan class, but not all their plants were deemed to be up to the required standard.

Salix hylematica

The Crataegus Trophy for the best plant in the Intermediate section went to Pauline Carless for this Salix.

Trifolium purpurascens quadrifolium

An interesting clover for foliage effect, also from the Intermediate section, exhibited by Brenda Nickels.

Salix breviserrata

In the open section Vic Aspland exhibited this Salix in the class for a rock plant grown for natural effect.

Chamaecytisus demissus

Continuing with a shrubby theme, this large pot of Chamaecytisus was exhibited by Barry Winter.  Although I carried three miniature gardens, I think this was the heaviest pot of the day.

x Kalmiothamnus Sindelberg

Ian Kidman won the Edinburgh Quaich for the best ericaceous plant with this x Kalmiothamnus.

Rhododendron pumilum

A third rhododendron, and my favourite, from John Savage.

Primula petelotii

Don Peace exhibited a very well flowered plant of P. petelotii; I gather this is not the first show it has appeared at this year, so presumably it spends weekdays in the fridge.

Primula petiolaris Sheriffs Form

A fine asiatic primula from Lionel Clarkson

Oxytropis lagopus
