That is a lovely Tricyrtis  :)

My garden saw -6°c overnight a couple of weeks ago and that was not expected so most things have died back for the year (and a few permanently I fear) but there are a couple of things blooming.
Nerine...............


In the greenhouse;
Echeveria cante............

Finally, back in May I went to the village plant sale and as I was about to leave a woman came bustling along carrying a crate of plants apologising for being late. Immediately I spotted something in the middle that I knew - Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'. I'd lusted after this from the first time that I saw it at oxfords Botanic Gardens but I could never find one for sale in the UK. After a few years I gave up and then there it was, for a couple of quid! It came into bloom a few weeks ago but here is a photo of a cutting that I took at the end of September..............

The mother plant grew large (but has now been pieced up to make new plants)..............

this 'Mona Lavender' is stunning, I have never heard of it.

Erigeron trifidus is blooming out of season, a nice gift from Mr Gilgemyn  ;)

Hi Yann,
that erigeron looks like one that came up in a pot from a friend who grows a lot of North American plants.
It produced 2 flowers last month and died :'(
However it appears to have produced viable seed as I sprinkled the seed onto the surface of the pot and seedlings have appeared almost immediately!
cheers

No doubt due to the unusual weather Alpine Sowthistle, Cicerbita alpina, is flowering again.
