Ah, beautiful!

Oh Todd!!! I'm drooling. I love the lewisia! And the little delphinium & the saxifraga and all of them....

My favorite is the Androsace. Every bit of it is so healthy and beautiful.

North East England, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

Very nice! That saxifraga looks amazing already. I was staggered by the flower on mine. Tulips too - even this late!

Central, UT(Zone 5b)

Great pics! What's the secret for getting your Silene to bloom like that? I got a couple meager little blooms on mine this year but nothing like that.

That Delphinium is another one I'll have to try for sure. Only 8" tall and a stunning blue to boot.

Ally, Silene acaulis is native to Newfoundland, albeit about 500 miles north of me. I grow it in the poorest of gravel with just a hint of peat....it seems to perfer NO nutrients and excellent drainage.
