Below are a few pictures I took at the Southport Show. Many thanks to Roger Beecham and all his helpers for a great show.

Thanks for taking these photos, and for taking the time to post them.  That's an incredible entry for one pan Lewisia.  I'm interested in the winning 3-pan.  I would love to know what those three plants were.  The one at the front looks like a Nassauvia, or possibly an Eriogonum; behind that Viola cornuta ?, but what is the yellow plant at the back.

Sorry but I didn't make a note of the names but the plants were exhibited by Tim lever. The original photograph is also out of focus so I cannot read the labels on my original picture and downgrading the number of pixels for the site has also made them impossible to read.

I hadn't deleted the pics on my camera so I reloaded them onto the computer and could read the labels of the first two plants. The front one is Nassauvia lagascae, Armadillo's tail. The middle one is Viola cazorlensis x delphinantha.

Thanks Ian

I thought I recognised the Nassauvia.  Obviously not practised enough at violas.  The best possibility I can come up with for the yellow plant at the back is a linum - Gemmells Hybrid or one of the yellow species.
