Hello boys & girls!

I went to see the Fritillaria Society Meeting which was held at Wisely on 17 March, 2013.

I kinda expected to see a lot of fritillarias there, but in fact not so many of them were exhibited and other unusual plants instead (please don’t get me wrong – I really enjoyed myself there!)

And there were plants sales also…..

After the exhibition, I strolled the garden for a while……

The sellers didn’t have wide sellection of fritillarias (obviously March isn’t right time to buy bulbs anyway), so I didn’t buy any fritillalia on that day. Instead, I bought the following plants…..


dionysia aretioides “Phyllis Carter”


Saxifraga kellereri “Suendermannii Major”

Thanks for watching! Peace!

How many did you buy and what were they.

Brian beat me to it - asking the name of the Corydalis.
What a delight - you must have had a great day!

Thank you for your comments! Yes, I had a great time there!

@Bjs
The fritillaria is called "sibthorpiana" and the corydalis is called "darwasica".

Peace!
