Ian - That Lilium macklinae puts the pale one to shame, quite lovely.  Glendoick was selling this dark one several years ago, do you know the original source of it?

Very nice selection Luit !
I'd never seen the 'citrinum' version of Hypericum olympicum !
Love the dwarf Dianthus' too - a nice splash of colour !

My D. 'Inschriach Dazzler' is in it's 3rd season - I'm keeping my fingers crossed... lost it on previous occasions too.

Luc,
Is Your Edraianthus owerinianus from seed? How much takes it to flower? I have some seedlings from this year, they look rather leggy, and not too happy  :-\ I keep all my seedlings in quite shade, under a tree, because our spring was hot like summer (32-35°C in May!). Maybe they (the Edraianthus seedlings) need more sun?

Hello Katherine !
E. owerianus was a plant I bought 3 or 4 years ago.
E. pumilio self seeds around regularly here - I have occasionally potted up some of the seedlings and grew them on for a number of months (in semi shade) before planting them on.  They seem to flower in their third year.
The seedlings may look a bit leggy now (so did mine), but once planted out in the open, they will rapidly regain their normal growing habit.

Luit,

A lovely selection. The hemerocallis lilioasphodelus, a species daylily, holds up well in comparison with the numerous cultivars now available - and it is the earliest to flower as well. It also has an elegance which many of the cultivars lack.

I have a plant of Molopospermum in the garden, great big spread of foliage, but no flower yet. I find it needs lots of water from now on.

I certainly agree with that Paddy. Some of the new cultivars are just awful and this is one of the most beautiful species

But Luit, This is the one I have as citrina. The one I have as lilioasphodelus (or flava) is shorter, darker and earlier. The pictures are first my "citrina" then my "flava"

All stunning plants Ian !  Wonderful Nomocharis - and Lilium - and....  :o

Here's some from my garden  :D

1) Campanula nitida - love the waxy flowers !
2) Campanula betulifolia
3) Edraianthus owerianus
4) Edraianthus pumilio
5) Edrainthus sutjeskai - funny name and new to me - nice big goblets !
6) Dianthus microlepis 'Rivendel' - much more flowers than in previous years  :D
7) Dianthus 'Eileen Lever'
8- Dianthus 'Inschriach Dazzler' - another favourite
9) Minuartia caucasica - some 10 years old and producing it's first 2 flowers ever !  8)
10) Lewisia x rediviva - I've posted it before but now in full bloom !!!

I quite agree, wonderful plants...those posted here, Luc are just fabulous - the two Campanula are perfection and how wonderful to enjoy the first flowering of  Minuartia caucasica after a decade  :)

Göte
Göte, when my plant starts flowering I am always a little in doubt, because the young buds look a little brownish.
When it is open it is totally yellow. I think the one you have as citrina is the same as my plant.
Hem. citrina is something totally different, it comes from N. Korea and flowers in summer with big lemon yellow flowers
and it smells pleasant. I have it long time but never made a picture, will do so this summer (if I don't forget  ;D).
I think that the one you have as H. lilioasphodelus is H. middendorffi, which flowers very early.
I bought my plant 3 years ago from a gardener who did not know what it was, so I have no references of being the true plant.

Pictures taken today.

The two Dianthus shown; have their labels hidden under a 30 centimeter mat of foliage. I think they are named varieties, and if anyone would like to hazard a guess as to what they might be, it might kick-start my memory cells.  :o

Lampwick,

A lovely selection. The potentilla, in particular, catches my eye. On the other hand I find phygelius a complete thug in the garden, wandering about underground to appear all over the place. I have pulled several cultivars from the garden and won't let them back in again.

John, I cannot help with your Dianthus, though the pink one is a bit familiar to me.
But your Campanula is definitely not C. carpatica Blue Clips. It looks more like a C. portenschlagiana,
but to be sure a close-up of the leaf and a few flowers would be helpful.
