I was helping Doug Joyce with the show photography. Here are a few plants which found their way onto the photography table while Doug was at lunch. First, Petrocosmea kerrii exhibited by Cecilia Coller.
Another hybrid raised and exhibited by Martin and Anna Sheader. This one could almost be a Primula allionii.
I guess many of us still remember this as Tacitus bellus. Exhibited by Joy Bishop
The first of two specimens from this South African genus, this was exhibited by Martin and Anna Sheader
Bob and Rannveig Wallis brought two (or three ?) pots of this Triteleia in perfect condition.
Now a few pictures taken around the benches in dismal lighting. This was Martin and Anna Sheader's entry in New or Rare - I hope noone got stung!
was this fine exhibit from Cecilia Coller.
I thought this campanula was attractive and less familiar than many. I'm sorry I didn't record the exhibitor. Lots of flowers still to come.
Now the second Eucomis. I think this was probably the heaviest exhibit in the room, hauled in by Bob and Rannveig Wallis.
The last plant from the show bench, glowing from the dingiest corner of the hall - a saxifrage, but for some reason I didn't record details of the plant or the exhibitor - perhaps I was distracted.
While I was at Pershore for the show, I took a stroll round the garden at the AGS Centre. This campanula was waiting to greet people as they walked in.
Now a pretty pink allium, but with no label I could find. Can anyone tell me what it is ?
One of my favourite plants, though not exactly dwarf, but sadly impermanent for me. I need to find a way to introduce more drainage into my clay for the winter months.
Lastly, one of the highlights of the garden were these foxgloves, some a good 8 feet high. Which species is this ?
Thanks Jon, you beat me to it. It's not often on this forum you have to queue to make a contribution! I've only got a few left which don't needlessly repeat what you've posted, thanks for saving my typing fingers Below we have Sempervivum montana Bloodtips, Erigeron Canary Bird and the Farrer plant, Epipactis palustris
Hi Jon, The Pershore garden Dig is D. ferruginea. The spreading rounded white-rimmed sepals like little ears are diagnostic. This tall subalpine was introduced into the garden from MESE seed in 2000 and has maintained by self-sowing here and in my own garden ever since.
