A few photos of plants which caught my eye, the award plants I'm sure will appear on the results page soon

Callianthemum farreri, tiny with just 2 flowers but a stunner shown by Brian Burrow

Diuris orientis, I think of Australian origin which won Barry Tattersall a well desreved certificate of Merit

Draba longisiliqua (made mine look embarrassingly under flowered) which won Frank & Barbara Hoyle the Farrer Medal

Next up Fritillaria crassifolia ssp hakkarensis shown by Derek Pickard

Fritillaria pineticola shown by Janet Aspland

Fritillaria reuteri, George Young

 

My last batch

Lewisia tweedyi, in a beautiful rich colour form, Peter Farkasch

Primula Lindum Limelight, Brian & Shelagh Smethurst

Rhodothamnus chaemaecistus which earned Ian Kidman the trophy for best in a 19cm pot

Thanks for posting the pictures Martin.

I'm glad I wasn't doing the show photography - that Draba looks extremely heavy - but what a fantastic plant !

And what a lovely orchid from Barry - on reflection, I would have liked the opportunity to photograph that. It is at least 5 years since I last saw Diuris on the show benches.
