Thank you Maggi, Lori, zvone and Kris!

Maggi itís Clematis integrifolia 'Hakurei'. Honestly it looks better on pictures than in real life. I prefer species C. integrifolia.

Some lovely plants Olga et al, I agree with Olga that 'Hakurei' looks better in a picture, but it's not white Maggi, here's one in our garden, it has a lovely touch of blue.

 Thank you, Olga and Brian.


Wonderful plants in all your lovely gardens, Folks! 8)

Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web' - this is growing in deep shade under a magnolia and the fully expanded leaves are quite a spectacle! It came from Bob Brown's remarkable nursery, Cotswald Garden Flowers in Evesham. A perfect plant for dry shade.

What an extraordinary leaf, and just right in that deep shade.

I was able to object to you Brian.  :) I've always thought it's pure white. But I look at my images and at the pictures in the Internet. Yes you are right! Mine is touched by blue too!

That's a nice one Tim! Don't think it is hardy here though :(

Some wildflowers, Rhodiola rosea and Sedum album:

Rather nice plants Trond - love the strength of colour in the Rhodiola, definitely one to try for the nursery.

That certainly is an eye-catcher fatsia, Tim!
Of course, the species is an uncommon houseplant here...

So spring growth is green and summer growth turns variegated?

Last year SRGC member Kim very kindly sent me seeds for Fuchsia procumbens all the way from New Zealand. Here is the first flower on one of the resulting plants.................



I'm made up with this, so a big thanks to Kim!

Somewhat baffling is Tricyrtis "Taipei Silk" which is now in bloom..................



Finally, the first blooms on my seed grown Lobelia tupa..............

Very nice indeed - I planted one in our sand bed last year, but it hasn't flowered and (I hope!) has now just gone dormant this summer.

Colleagues - what a wonderful July was in your gardens! Thanks for the photos!

Some flowers from my garden ... flowering of many plants I missed while I was in the expedition, but some continue to blossom.

Great pictures the whole month of July. I haven't been posting here for a long time ( just too busy with other chores ), but here is a picture of Phacelia campanularia whioch I took the other day. It had self seeded in one of the pots where I grew it last year. They stay low and compact and flower best if they are kept really dry.
