Very interesting was to see a flower chimera of a Dahlia. Not many growers would'nt take the time to cut such a flower and take it to the show.

and a few other entries:

This week the visitors at the Show were surprised by seeing a vase with an rather uncommon pinkish-red gentian. Doing some research I found out that this was bred in New Zealand and is one of a series of new colours:

Luit, I'm sure I've seen these some of these pinkish-red gentians somewhere on the Forum fairly recently but can't find them. Bet Maggi can ;D

I think this is a very attractive flower- and beautifully photographed, Luit.
If I saw this for sale as a cut flower I would be sure to buy it. Wonder how long it might take to reach Aberdeen florists?  :-X

Agreed !!

Maggi, I haven't seen them here either, until now, but with this special strong colour I would buy them too. However I never liked those plants, which are sold en masse as rock plants in the Garden Centers with these pink(ish) flowers  ::) ::)

Amongst a bigger entry of Amarine in vases there was Monday an impressive potgrown red cultivar:
 
Amarine Amor  This should be Nerine bowdenii x Nerine sarniensis
