Castilleja species

Next to the Eriogonum was this Castilleja - I'm not sure whether the Eriogonum was acting as host.

Pseudofumaria lutea

On the wall between the terraces containing the two alpine houses.

Helianthemum

Next to the Erigeron, this unnamed pink Helianthemum was spectacular.

Silver Saxifrage

In the shade of the second alpine house there is a tufa wall, featuring plants of Primula allionii, and this unlabelled silver saxifrage.

Saxifraga Tumbling Waters

Further along the tufa wall.

Echinopsis / Lobivia hybrids

Outside the lower alpine house there is another sandbed, again covered in winter, which contained a variety of cacti flowering well, probably mainly hybrids between Echinopsis and Lobivia, including the previously mentioned Echinopsis Ralph's Orange.

Petromarula pinnata

The lower alpine house is the one people like to be rude about - it is planted out permanently, with massive rocks, and very large, established, but not to every eye particularly choice plants.  But in the summer when these plants flower it is spectacular.  Maybe no AGS members visit at this time of year.  Here is a large clump of Petromarula pinnata, with a yellow Eremurus, perhaps E. stenophyllus, behind.

Anchusa species ?

I'm not sure what this was, perhaps an Anchusa.

Erodium corsicum rubrum

The familiar Erodium corsicum has grown into large mats in this protected environment.
