Here is the last of Sax. fortunei in pots to come into flower it's called Conwy Snow and if you look carefully some of the flowers seem to be semi double. Rather pretty.  The ones in the garden were ruined by a very heavy hailstorm last Saturday.
Very beautiful your Conwy Snow  ;)

In my Berlin garden the Saxifraga are in flower for weeks, no frost until today, I love them  :D

That looks a good one Irm.

Yesterday's sun made me venture into the garden and I discovered that the SaX. f's hadn't been completely destroyed by the hail storm.  The garden is very wet as you can see, the first picture shows from R to L. Sax. f. obtusocuneatum, Sax. f. Mount Naachi, then there are 2 whose labels have faded beyond recognition.  One must be Sax. f. Autumn Tribute but I'm afraid I don't remember if is pink or white.

Lovely collection Shelagh.

Irm and Shelagh are both doing better with those plants in the garden than they do here  :'(

I'm shocked at how very good your plants look, Shelagh, after such bad weather.

This Acer is showing some nice autumn colour. And Camellia transnokoensis has nice reddish new leaves and buds.

Indeed it is - very golden.  8) What species is it ? I don't recognise those long leaves - though I expect I should!   :-\

I think it's an A. palmatum cultivar - I'll see if I can find a label, but it was planted some ten years ago and labels tend to disappear!

 Ralph: Ian says might it be   Acer palmatum 'Scolopendrifolium'  ?

Looking for a link to one....... 

edit : THIS looks about right      ( I hate it when the BD beats me to an ID!)

Quite possible. I bought a load of Acer palmatum cultivars from a specialist nursery that used to be near Ashford (at Aldington) when they closed down due to retirement. I'll look for a label if we get any daylight tomorrow.

Well, found the remains of two labels under the mulch, very decayed and almost illegible. One is Acer palmatum 'Shindeshojo', but that isn't our plant; the other label fragment pretty indecipherable - I keep coming back to it and every time it looks different! Hey ho!

Well tried, Ralph!  Do you think GCHQ has a query line?  ::) ;) ;D
