Helichrysum ruholepis

An interesting helichrysum, which made a good photographic subject, again from Chris Bowyer.

Flower arrangements

At recent shows I have dared to carry and photograph the flower arrangements, and this was no exception.  The first arrangement, which won, was from Mavis and Sam Lloyd, but I thought the second, exhibited by Paddy Parmee, was unlucky with the lighting in the hall - taken out into daylight the subtle tones came to life.

Huanaca andina

John and Clare Dower submitted three plants to the JRGC without success - the first was this little composite from South America.

Tarasa humilis

A small but well-coloured seedling of Tarasa humilis, again from John and Clare Dower.

Rubus taiwanicola BSWJ317

This unusual rubus, exhibited by John and Clare Dower, which apparently makes attractive berries, was on sale on one of the nursery stands at the show.

Saussurea stella

Tim Lever has exhibited a number of plants of this wierd monocarpic thing from the Himalayas over recent years.  If this one does not set seed, it is the last.

Pelargonium auritum subsp carneum

Another familiar mid-summer exhibit from George Elder
