All I really need to know is does it still come under bulb classes in the SRGC and AGS? 

Yep, but are you volunteering to run a show in August?

Oleg,

That was a nice welcome home for you, excellent plants and photographs.

Your seasons and flowering times amaze me. Codonopsis and carlina are in flower here but galtonia flowered months ago. I would never see them all in flower at the same time.

In the 25 years that I have had this Lapageria this is the first time it has ever flowered in August.

Cracking picture Dave, can't understand why you need a new lens! ;D

Cheers ;D ;D ;D

Not sharp enough is the simple answer and I can't get the smaller flowers full frame as I can't get close enough with the current lens.

Wim, your unknown Cyclamen looks very much like C. hederifolium!

Hello Thomas,

it certainly could be. I'm no expert in Cyclamens... I probably bought it when it was in flower and I just liked it  ;)

Thanks for the determination

Oleg - Are the Galtonias growing outdoors and overwintering there?
