Graham might try and go. Never been to the Glasgow show. Good luck with your plants. Take your camera just in case I don't get there.

Michael like those White Lewisa  8)

Angie, that is a white Rediviva x Longipetala cross, the second one is the reverse cross. One has anthers and the other doesn't.

Michael are you sure they are going out of fashion there seems to be a lot in the garden centres over here. Yours are amazing. Some lovely colours there.

The L. tweedyi are over and the L. cotyledon ssp. cotyledon have taken over with L. nevadensis in the middle level of the trough and L. pygmaea in the lower level.
