For this Azorella, my friends from the Arctic Alpine Garden and I need an ID. It comes from the area of ​​Las Lenas in the province of Mendoza. It has a light growth (not compact), but very long leaves. Should any of the specialists identify them it would be very good.

Thanks Thomas

I had several seedlings of Maihuenia but many were destroyed by slugs and the others died one wet winter.

Here are two pictures from Neuquen, Argentina:

Maihuenia poeppigii ( I suppose)

571845-0



..and Maihuenia patagonica (I hope)

571847-1



Leucogenes, you know that Nothofagus becomes a big tree?

Hello Trond ... yes, I know this kind is normally very large. This clone is from my friends from the Arctic Alpine Garden in Chemnitz. There the mother plant is at most 3 meters high and grows more like a shrub ... and it grows very slowly. :)

My two Maihuenia are outdoors, but they are covered with glass for safety. They grow very well but unfortunately without flowers.

Your pictures are fantastic. Until now, Leucheropia leontopodioides was my favorite. Now it is the Leucheria candidissima shown by you.

I look forward to more photos of your trip ... I ordered the book from Martin Sheader yesterday. ;D

... after successful germination it was now time to replant the young plants of Tropaeolum incissum. Hopefully, they continue to develop so well. :)

A question to the specialists here ... is it worth to plant Cistanthe grandiflora in the Alpinum? Or do I have a field in a short time? The germination is very good. They are wild seeds from Chile. Unfortunately, no further details.

Leucogenes,

I can't advice you on the Cistanthe but you seem to have a lot of seedlings to try!

... after successful germination it was now time to replant the young plants of Tropaeolum incissum. Hopefully, they continue to develop so well. :)


The Tropaeolum looks great!

Here are a few pictures. We even found plants very high up in the mountains.




At lower elevation they were in full flower:

572795-1

572797-2

572799-3

Trond, thank you for the beautiful pictures. My garden is located on 400 m N.N.
Many times Trppaeolum incissum blooms with me ... in a hundred years.  ;)
