Anne,Lori and Trond very nice pictures from the garden. Lori is the Eritrichum from seed or bought it. It is fantastic.Anne your Genista is beautiful. I got one plant last year but it died. Here are some pictures I took twodays ago and tried to post it but not successful.
Forgot one... I'm very pleased that Eremostachys speciosa has chosen to be perennial (as it is supposed to be... but who ever knows?) and that last year's blooming plant will flower again this year: [attachthumb=1]
Absolutely gorgeous array of plants, David! Primula maximowiczii is wonderful, Dave! I grew it years ago and thought it was absolutely amazing. I don't have anything to compare to Claire's and Trond's but here is a curious one from the esteemed Pam Eveleigh at last year's CRAGS plant sale: Primula palmata: [attachthumb=1]
And a Primula allionii hybrid planted last year, 'Aire Mist': [attachthumb=2]
