tell me, is that Phlox_hiberson the real colour - and is that the real name ?? It's a lovely little plant anyway.


My Nikon deform the colour a little, especially blue. But I think each camera has some defect.
As regrds the name, sometimes I buy from Czech Republic the plants, that don't have correct name, but they are beautiful.

If you want more photos...

Thanks for the explanation Ewelina and Susan ! 
Main thing is : that phlox is a little stunner !
As to my eyesight, I could brag about it Susan, but honesty forces me to admit I read the name under the thumbnail.... ::)

I still haven't got over Mark's pictures of ZZ derived rock gardens-absolutely stunning. I showed them to she who must be obeyed-"No" she said in a very loud voice "Your'e not starting to convert the whole of the garden". Can't understand why not.

I am thinking of going at the end of April - beginning of May, as on my way from Romania to Praga I would be able to attend three shows: at Bratislava, Brno and Prague (on 29, 30 April and 2 May). And on my way back maybe go the Belvedere Alpine Garden in Vienna.

Razvan, probably we meet in Praha. I'm on 2 May too. Perhaps we identify us in crowd, that arrive to the show.

Will sombody be on 2 May in Praha too?

Czech gardeners are just like British (incl NZ) gardeners. Getting old, grey or balding and slung about with cameras. :D

we will be coming out on the 3rd as well, but prob spending the time looking around the city as we haven't been there before. Maybe we will see you at the airport Mark? Are you staying in the city overnight, if you are, see you for a beer, we are staying in the old town.

Some of them probably are, Lesley, but those in Mark's photo are Irish gardeners, just visiting!
