Geum rivale islandicum

Geum rivale islandicum
The miniature Icelandic form of our rather lovely but understated Water Avens. The nodding pale peachy flowers are much the same but on shorter stems. An easy and adaptable 'alpine' on any soil that does not dry out. Ideal mini bog plant.
10cm pots ~ £5





Campanula


Campanula raddeana
Campanula raddeana
A Caucasian species with strongly serrated basal leaves and rich purple bells in reddish calyces on slender  reddish stems. An easy ‘alpine’ for any well drained soil in sun, but like many bell-flowers it is a bit of a runner.
10cm pots ~ £5



Campanula stevenii beauverdiana
Campanula stevenii beauverdiana
A lovely Caucasian species with violet bells over a very long period in summer. An easy alpine for sun and good drainage.
1L pots ~ £5
