Erinus alpinus

Mainly the white form, which is my favourite, in late afternoon sun.

Sedum pilosum

Must save the seed, it is wonderful (and monocarpic).

Sedum pilosum
Paeonia sp

I'm not sure what this is - it came to me as a seedling from Michael Baron about 8 years ago, but I have long since lost the label. It is a lovely colour anyway.

Gladiolus parvulus

A lovely summer flowering South African gladiolus, from Robin White. Just 6 inches high, with stems like thin wire.

A wonderful tour around your plants in bloom, Jon ... some cracking shots there.

Jon - it's wonderful how every garden has it's own special plants and ways of looking at them! That Sedum pilosum is tremendous and I haven't come across it before. I'm really interested by your crevice bed, having also seen photos before. We are toying with the idea of doing a display at the Kent Garden Show next year and so it would be good to get some inspiration from AGS gardens here in the south.

Wonderful pictures Jon - you have a delightful garden.

The crevice garden looks fabulous !!

Alpines generally don't figure in many gardens, but where they do they can be highly attractive. These few pictures are from the recent 'Secret Gardens' opening in Faversham where we live, and I put them in really to show that it is nice to think of alpines as a contribution to a garden, as much as we may often view them in more isolation at Shows, or even within our own gardens. Very many towns and villages hold such openings through the summer, and it would be nice to see alpines more represented.
