Dactylorhiza hybrids

I know there are lots of you out there who grow dactylorhizas much better than this, but I was pleased to have two flowering spikes. I think the wet weather has helped them, and usually my conditions are too dry for them.

Dianthus

I'm not sure what this dianthus is; as usual with the crevice garden it is sitting on the label !

Dianthus
Dianthus Fusilier

At least I know the name of this one. It needs propagating this summer.

Geranium papuanum

This plant has now been with me for 4-5 years. Although it makes wiry shoots out in all directions, it doesn't root down, and every winter dies back to the central point. Surprisingly, the thread-like shoots do take as cuttings.

Border Geraniums

Now some geraniums from the border; again I don't know the names - they came to me from family and friends, with no labels attached - but they are common and familiar garden plants.

Helianthemum cultivars

Now some of the many Helianthemum cultivars around the garden. Not many labels left with them either.

Helianthemum Ben Ledi

This is one of my particular favourites, hence I remember the name.

Hypericum olympicum

Another plant I tend to take lots of close-ups of, fascinated by the fan of stamens.
