Wisley - some pics from yesterday (Sunday 25 Nov)
« on: November 26, 2007, 01:05:02 PM »
Not sure if this is where Maggie would like this post - but I am sure she will put it in the right place if I have got it wrong :) Perfectly happy with here, John... good to have you back! M

I spent a great day at Wisley yesterday visiting the new glass house with a load of 'jungle plant friends' - whilst there I sneaked off and had a quick whiz round the alpine houses and took some pictures that I thought I would share (unfortunately I had to be quick so that I wasn't missed so didn't take down the names - hoping that someone else can say what everything is - sorry, I shall take more care next time!)

best wishes

John

Hi John,
Long time no see !
The fact that you seem to have been lost in the jungle says it all of course....  ;D
Anyway, nice pix and thanks for showing.

My guesses :-

Picture 1 - Oxalis versicolor
Picture 2 - Sempervivum arachnoideum cristate
Picture 3 -
Picture 4 -
Picture 5 - Massonia pustulata
Picture 6 -
Picture 7 - Crocus laevigatus 'Fontenayi'
Picture 8 -
Picture 9 - Arisarum vulgare

That's my limit, over to everybody else.

#4 the label says most of it, and guessing from the colour - Lachenalia viridiflora
#6  Buckiniczia cabulica
#8 Narcissus cantabricus

which leaves #3 - along with #2 looking strangely cristate or fasciated perhaps?

Gosh you are all really good with the photo idents! The missing one is indeed a Townsendia, its Townsendia condensata from a population where a good proportion produce fasciated growth. Seeds collected from these plants continue to produce a good proportion of cristate seedlings, so its obviously a genetic problem.

Well done guys - I knew you could name them all for me - just didn't expect it to be quite so quickly!

its obviously a genetic problem.

a genetic asset in my mind - I have always been attracted to plants that differ from the norm and love cristate plants.
