Talking about plants you used to grow. Is anyone still growing viola zoysii? You don't see it around much yet is a lovely little yellow viola that creeps around.

I tried it many years ago in the mid 1970s, Jack Drake’s Inshriach Nursery used to offer it from time-to-time. It didn’t stay with me for very long, but I wouldn’t mind trying it again; but you don’t see it around much nowadays.  :'(

Talking of Violas, I have V. jooii, (again from Jack Drake) It grows well enough with me, I’ve had it for some years now, but I rarely see a flower! I have seen it on the show bench with an abundance of flowers – what am I doing wrong?  >:(

Some years ago I moved a small seedling of R. unalaschkensis to the corner of a sunny trough to fill a space left by a departed Perezia recurvata. I knew it was a completely wrong location to plant the shade loving Romanzoffia, and of course, it didn’t survive there for long. But it came up a few years later in a 25 year old patch of Sempervivum arachnoideum; in the opposite corner of the trough; and is still there!

It’s not anywhere near as robust and healthy as the plants in the shade, but it survives and even puts out a flower or two each year.

…Here it is. A piece just right of centre; and a smaller piece top left. There are five little clumps in total peeping through the dense hard carpet of the houseleek.  :o

Very very fine specimens of the Asperulas. Mine are Soooo scruffy in comparison, though I do find them long-lived.

"to fill a space left by a departed Perezia recurvata." Yours too? :'(

Hi Lampwick,
I believe you didn't do something wrong. The absence of flowers is a typical feature of the violets from the Adnatae section (most of them from east Asian origin). Nevertheless there is a good seedset via cleistogamic (not open) flowers, they spread around like weeds.
Sometimes there may be a surprise. So I had a wonderful display of flowers with Viola seouliensis (only one year of 5). This year I found some good flowering Viola somchetica. It seems climatic conditions during a preceding winter are an importand factor.

Hello everybody,
I have bought this plants as Saxifraga caesia. I am in 100% sure, that it is wrongly named. I have no idea what species it could be. Is anybody able to identify this species? I will try to send more photos after it flower.
Best regards,
