... out in the garden.

Tmesipteris lanceolata .
I have a Dicksonia grown from an imported trunk and a few interesting plants have grown out of the trunk (in addition to the delightful Dicksonioa of course). This was fairly easy to identify as a Tmesipteris - the identification as T.lanceolata is a bit more speculative for the moment.

Camellia sasangua 'Paradise Glow' .
I know nothing about the Paradise' varieties of Camellia sasangua, so this flower was a pleasant surprise. I bought a few autumn flowering Camellias to adorn the newly flattened garden entrance, which is otherwise a sea of mud and hardcore at the moment.

Chirita sclerophylla .
I got this curious little Chirita from China during last winter, and now suddenly it has rushed up into flower, which I am very pleased about. I had a few odd Gesneriads at the time, and have not done quite so well with some of them (hangs head in shame).

Acer palmatum 'Sekka Yatsubusa' .
Hardly surprisingly there has been very little in the way of autumn colour this year - the display has been rained off (rained on?). There has been a brief show among the smaller Acer palmatum varieties because they are in the greenhouse (which is probably cheating).

Acorus Alocasia Anemone Arisaema Arum Asarum Aspidistra Begonia Bromeliads Camellia
Carnivorous Cautleya Chirita Chlorophytum Clivia Colocasia Crocosmia Dionaea Drosera Epimedium
Eucomis Fuchsia Galanthus Hedychium Helleborus Hemerocallis Hepatica Hosta Impatiens Iris
Liriope Ophiopogon Pinguicula Polygonatum Ranunculus ficaria Rhodohypoxis Rohdea Roscoea Sansevieria Sarracenia
Scilla Sempervivum Tricyrtis Tulbaghia Utricularia Viola odorata Watsonia

I have a lot of good intentions when it comes to updating this site, and I try to keep a note about what is going on, if you are interested.
