Well done Wim, have you posted these on the SRGC Forum? I'm sure there would be some envious viewers in Scotland. ;D

Very nice Wim!
Where did you get seed from? I have looked for seeds of Shortia for a long time! I had some seedlings a few years ago but they died in a dry spell in the summer.

Shortia uniflora from the botanical garden in Oslo in April, one grows in sun (to much maybe) and the other in shade:

Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers  (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!

Thanks Trond,

I got the seeds from the botanical garden of Göteborg. If you become a member of their "Connoisseur's Club' (for free) http://gotbot.se/kulturvast_templates/Kultur_XForm.aspx?id=51524, you get their seed-catalogue each year!

Seed-hunter have entered the stage :-) Good luck with it!

Here are some impressions of my garden

Clematis recta 'Purpurea' with lovely foliage

Gillenia stipulata in the third year after sowing

My favorite grass Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola'

Kirengeshoma palmata

Paris quadrifolia

Phlomis tuberosa 'Amazone'

Polygonatum x 'Weihenstephan' ( a real nice and vital one)

Some other Polygonatum pictures will follow maybe next week! Or should i create a new Polygonatum topic?

Don't laugh :(

I have looked in several catalogues but not found seeds of Shortia, at least not last year - I know some catalogues have from time to time but not every year :-\

Trond, I'm not laughing with you....only with Cohan's comment....just say the word "seeds" and there he is!  ;) ;) ;D

You really should try Göteborg....in the five years I receive their catalogue, there's only been one year in which they didn't sell any Shortia seed!
