Do you have pics of Silene bolanthoides and Linum boissieri? I have them both as 1 year old plants and I intrigued what they will look like.

Some stunning things there. I especially like that last Silene.

Mark, does your Matthiola have a pleasant perfume like the old fashioned single and double garden stock?

i've been working on an order from this fantastic list for some weeks!
and with great pain was finally able to bring it down to a reasonable number, and have confirmed by email, now i just need to send off payment!
one of my final selections was a Matthiola-montanum, described as having brown flowers, which i couldnt resist :)
mark's picture gave me a better idea of what it might look like...

Thanks, ZZ. It is always good to see habitat pictures :) My L.boissieri seems more hirsute, but the leaves are right. The Silene is a stunner- I shall look forward to that one blooming!

Beautiful series of plants growing in their habitats, where most of us are not likely to see them "live".

Plant selection from big mountain Sierra Nevada is the last dance in the fresh Spanish rhythm. The highest ridges are formed from something looking like crystalline schist and there you can see the real miniature alpine (suitable for tufa cultivation) called Ptilotrichum purpureum. I grow myself in my limy soil the hedgehogs of Erinacea anthyllis. A real miracle is the shocking red Anthyllis vulneraria ssp. atlantis and the local spring Gentiana is distinct from G. verna.

Ptilotrichum purpureum


To me seems the Ptilotrichum purpureum a totally different plant from what I know in culture??
Looks more a bit succulent.

Zdenek,
Thanks for the information about Viola delphinantha - also for showing the Sierra de Cazorla and of course for all these stunning pics!"

Are you thinking of Ptilotrichum spinosum 'Purpureum', Luit? I remember this one making a bushier plant with smaller flowers.

Thank you, ZZ, for raising consciousness here for Mojmír Pavelka---he has always been my favorite of the East European collectors (for various reasons, some of which you have mentioned), but also for his excellent seed quality, which, in the end, is what matters.
so many species....so little time

Yes Simon, but just found out, there is a Ptilotrichum purpureum which should be kept in the alpine house.
And therefore different from Pt. spinosum Purpureum.
Rather confusing!

Welcome Jiri, to the SRGC Forum. As always it's great to have another poster from those Eastern European countries where so many fabulous plants are at home. I hope you will find much to interest you here.

I'm interested in your name of alpine parrot, as we, in New Zealand, thought we had the only alpine parrot in the world. ;D He is the kea (Nestor notabilis) and is a VERY NAUGHTY BIRD, though beautiful. Perhaps you know him already?

Thanks for kind words :). I was so impressed with ZZ to be so active in forum and I have to confirm it is great source of information.  Also I can see so many names from Czech Alpine conference in Beroun in 2005 from the whole world. Re Alpine parrot - I saw some beautiful pictures from NZ. In fact my Czech name Papousek is equal to parrot. In a future I intend to create website with this name.
