Cyclamen Society Late Spring Show 2013 @ Wisley


By naoto


Dear boys & girls…..just got back from Wisley…..There was a lot of winter to early spring flowering cyclamens there…..

So here we go! Let’s rock’n roll!

Judgement day……



Three cyclamens (Tilebarn Nicholas, coum etc.)


C. coum “Tilebarn Elizabeth”

C.coum albissimum


Plant sales at the venue

And other plants…..

Corydalis solida “Firecracker”

Fritillaria argolica “yellow form”

Tulip kaufmanniana (thanks to Andrewr)

Bellevalia stevipedicellata

Muscari armeniacum “Gul”

Lachenalia aloides

Fritillaria “Uva Valpis”

My latest acquisition – C.solida (but I suspect that this is not just “solida” – it looks more like “solida George Baker”)


Bought this graecum from Green Ice Nursery from Holland.

I also bought P.marginata “Dwarf Form” at Wisley Plant Centre. I’ve just had it repotted gently……

Fabulous plants and wonderful photos, looks like a fascinating show to go to, though I'd probably buy way too much! Thanks for the lovely blog:)

George Baker or not it is very cheap,Surprised to see so many flowers other than Cyclamen to be seen,Another group that has in the past appeared very purist in there out look.

What beautiful leaves those cyclamen have, I especially like hederifolium and graecum. Many thanks naoto.

The tulip is kaufmanniana which has been in flower in my garden for about two weeks now

Thank you for your all comments!

Wisley Plant Centre is a paradise to me - they don't sell super-rare plants like the specialists, but have relatively rarer plants than (my) local garden centres. I could spend hours there (it only takes me 40 minutes from Kingston-upon-Thames by bus)

Most of alpines plants in 7cm pots are 1.99p and 3.99p if it's in bigger pots.
