Flowers and Foliage Now / Re: May 2024 in Northern Hemisphere

Herman,  I will check very carefully for seed on all the roscoea from now on.
The ants & wasps are very partial to them. 
Another taken this morning, Roscoea humeana seedlings ex McBeaths Pink. Seedlings came from Ann & Bob Armstrong.
Mike, those seedlings are true Roscoea humeana and very beautiful!

Many thanks to all the friends, who show us all their plants in such an outstanding condition.
We suffer from extremely heavy rainfalls, all the creeks and rivers in our region are overflooded
and many roads unpassable. I cannot remember such a wet spring since I started gardening. 
Wonder, how our plants will behave after this.
Last sunday the rain stopped for all the day and I had the the chance to photograph this miniature
iyv (don't know the name of this cultivar) and Sambucus nigra 'Black Lace'.

Mike, beautiful Roscoea's. I also like them. I didn't know R. humeana f. lutea and R. cautleoides 'Early purple'. They are gorgeous!
Identifying Roscoea is not easy. I have Jill Cowley's book "The genus Roscoea". I'll have to make time to study it more deeply.
Here other Roscoea's sometimes set seed, but this year is very wet.

Any chance of a plant list for the shade plant display (trough plus side plants)? I'm wishing I'd put in a request for a close-up photo as the longer distance shots look good and I was intrigued as soon as I read about it. We don't see nearly as many planting designs for shady troughs or crevice gardens as we do for sunny ones and they're much more likely to work for people with small urban gardens, so I'm glad this was included in the display.

Herman, I usually only find seed on Roscoea humeana alba but I do grow others that are in flower at the same time.
Roscoea humeana Lutea
Roscoea Harvington Raw Silk &
Roscoea Cautleyoides Early Purple.
Perhaps the insects or bees have had a hand mixing things for me.

Mike, are you sure about the name? Normally humeana has broader leaves.

More Roscoea humeana alba seedlings opened today, mixed colours along with Roscoea humeana lutea.
Garden view, just about run out of space.

The pallet complete. I should have taken some close ups to show  the  diversity of plants -approx 60 different species /cultivars. We have labled them which  some may find  a bit obtrusive  but  it lets the public  know what they are.
