Harrogate Flower Show, April 2015
Our display was a simple square, with a mountain area almost surrounded by plants from woods and damp places.
Here is a view from the opposite side ...
... and this shows much of the woodland area, with lots of trilliums on the left, anemones and primulas dominating on the right.
Here a scree descends from the 'mountain' to the edge, providing a home for Bukiniczia cabulica and some spiky Aciphyllas. These all appeared in displays through the season.
We usually have a 'Primula corner', where a range of the little ones are shown. Here the display includes forms of Primula calderiana, with Meconopsis x cookei behind.
This damp valley has lots of yellow flowers, including Trollius, Narcissus, Erythronium, Anemone and Primula.
A ledge on the side of the mountain provides a home for some specialities ...
... including red Primula maximowiczii ...
... and this strange Meconopsis. The best fit is Meconopsis integrifolia subsp. souliei, but maybe it is yet another new taxon.
This lovely pink form of Pulsatilla vulgaris sat at the top, where the light shone through its petals.
Below it were other colour forms of Pulsatilla, and this yellow Fritillaria collina.
A highlight of the woodland area was Trillium pusillum, grown by Alison Ward.
