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.

We haven't had snow yet, but it's been below freezing this past week at nights and days around zero, so ground is getting frozen.
Brave Colchicum 'Poseidon' pictured a week ago, but now it is over. This is such a good late Colchicum for me, it doens't mind a bit of cold. :)

That's indeed a brave Colchicum Leena :)
Here, cold and snow arrived very early this year, luckily the Colchicum autumnale flowered in October.
