Garden pictures from the weekend
First-flowering of a seedling poker, grown as Kniphofia ichopensis, but certainly a hybrid.
Argyranthemum 'Jamaica Primrose' (with Calamagrostis 'Overdam' behind). This is the clone maintained and distributed by Pam Schwerdt and Sibylle Kreutzberger: it is much superior to the clone currently offered commercially, being more compact and much more floriferous, but its willingness to flower makes it difficult to find vegetative cutting material from the plants.
Clematis brevicaudata and Viburnum opulus 'Xanthocarpa'.
A personal view of the world of horticulture and plants by a gardening botanist and author, living in Settrington, North Yorkshire, and working as Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum, a partnership between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Castle Howard.
