The haul included a couple of saxifragas which should be perfect for stuffing into cracks between the larger rocks. A gypsophila aretoides, in the hope that this one may actually survive if planted.
I also picked up a trio of campanulas, two blue and one white, the over-sized flowers are very delicate.
I am particularly pleased with the white one, campanula carpatica alba. I don't mind admitting I have a thing for white flowers, not the cream or off white, but those perfect white blooms (which are impossible to photograph).
They really stand out once planted, especially catching the last of the sun.
The sempervivum is one I had had before but left have managed to loose somewhere along the line s. 'Ohio Burgundy'. It has a good strong colour and clumps nicely, so will hopefully fill its spot without problems. While I was planting, I remembered there was a bowl of s. 'Lion King' that needed planting. It is one of my faourites so has gone at the edge of the path, so it can be admired.
Finally a larger pot of androsace sempervivoides, I have this plant in one of my alpine bowls and love it. While it is spreading, instead of spoiling the existing bowl, I treated myself.
So a few little gaps filled, but still lots to go. The aim is to carry on like this, selecting a few select plants, more quality than quantity. In the mean time another one of the campanulas, this time campanula x pseudoraineri.
