Really good pictures Diane, you must have done more than just talk you way round the show after all. There will be no pics from me, seemed to be tied up all day doing 'official' stuff, should be fine for next week. The hepaticas were by Ian Christie, a nice three pan. Spent part of the day humping Mr Kidmans v v large and heavy pans  back into his alpine house, the quicker he gets better the better it is from my point of view.

The one that catches some out (including judges) is  when cultivar-type names are applied to natural selections, e.g. Rhododendron ‘Yaku Fairy’ or Colchicum szovitzii “Tivi”.  These would both be allowed in “from Asia” classes as they are not cultivars but natural selections.  So long as the judges know that, we are OK!  

Which is why (in my opinion, and from a great distance) the Joint Rock insistence on cultivar names for WILD plants, put up for awards, is so damn silly!

Super photos from a grand show, Diane. Thank you so much.

Some real gems there.... I'd have 'em all!

The dainty Scoliopus is S. hallii,  rather than halleri, by the way ;)
