You certainly have a nice selection of alpine plants!

All beautiful and interesting!
Andromeda I've only seen growing in bogs here. I suppose you amended the beds with peat?

Cassiope 'Edinburgh'

@gabriela ... yes I have with all Ericaceae the same substrate. Acid soil with 1/4 peat. Less drainage. Watering only on weekends ... also in summer. Works well.

@david ... the Cassiope 'Edinburgh' looks good. I have them too. It becomes comparatively great.

... and here still a very small representative of the species ... Cassiope lycopodioides from the Japanese Alps. Remains flat ... max. 5 cm and grows very slowly.

Thanks; your Ericaceae surely likes it, all are doing very well.

Arctostaphylos uva-ursi doesn't need to have ssp. uva-ursi added. The great variation that exist between populations is thought to be based on the habitat and other ssp. or var. are not recognized, as far as I know. More work is probably needed.
The plants in the population I know around here have glassy-pink flowers and more rounded leaves than yours.

I got this plant with this name from the Arctic alpine garden in Chemnitz. I have one more kind... Arctostaphylos uva-ursi ssp. crassifolia from the Mt. Caro in Spain, 800 m. This considerably differs from first..., however, has never blossomed.

Very cute :) I like tiny plants.

I meant to post the Arctostaphylos uva-ursi from our region and forgot.

A couple of 'tree' heathers  in my garden.
I keep forgetting the name of the first one.   I thought it had been completely killed in the 2010 winter but did not remove the stump.  I was surprised when a shoot appeared from just above ground level about a year later.
Erica arborea 'Estrella Gold'

The seedex Chair for our local Rhodo Chapter & her husband grew Enkianthus campanulatus seed and got this very snazzy green-flowered one.  Has anyone seen such a thing before?  Not I, I have a soft spot for green flowers.
