Love that small Trollius Magnar !
Great show everybody !

Here's some attracting the attention in my garden over the last few days :

1) Arenaria granatensis tetraquetra
2 and 3) Androsace sarmentosa watkinsii
4 and 5) Campanula chamissonis 'Major'
6) Campanula biebersteiniana - one of my favourites but somewhat nibbled by some beasty..  >:(
7) Delosperma congesta (shows the name is well chosen ;  :D )
8 and 9) Dianthus 'Conwy star'
10) Dianthus 'White Hills'

johnw, I've had a couple of Salix xboydii for nigh on 10 years now, but they never put out catkins.  I wonder why?  Are yours fertilized regularly?

Lori - Mine has been in a trough for 22 years and never gets fertilized!  Obviously it grows very slowly. It started flowering about 10 years ago.

There is a huge one in the Jardin de Métis on the Gaspé that must have been planted shortly after it was first discovered.

Okay, so I'm not negligent then.  ;D  I will simply keep waiting, I guess!

2 from me first Haberlea ferdinandi-cobugii this has been in this trough since I covered a fish box with Hyper Tufa,the other is Acantholimon cilicicum I think this name is right but it was put in the Greenhouse 6 years ago when it was built and has never been watered only picking water up from sand bench.

Some lovely stuff here folks, it really makes me embarrassed about the state of my small rock garden which rarely gets the attention it needs. I must send Maureen on a course.

Luc are you sure that is really a pic of your Arenaria granatensis and not one of a green clothed range of mountains? Oh! forgot, you're in Belgium ;D

I will not react to your geographical joke David...  ;D  that Arenaria however has been there for 15 odd years, measures about 60 cm and has totally overgrown the pieces of rock (imported !) in the vicitiny.
