Kevock Goodies

Today my order from Kevock plants arrived. Maybe it's a bit weird to order plants from across the Channel but their collection is awesome and I have decided I can allow myself one shipment per annum. Last year I ordered some meconopsis (betonifolia and punicea) a fancy primula and some other things. All those things are doing ok and I expect them to flower this year. I did however kill the stunning black primula 'primula melanantha' ( primula euprepes). Not accepting defeat I ordered it again and will be keeping it in a seperate pot so I can controll conditions.

A list of the plants:
Primula melanantha
Iris chrysographes  (Yes i'm a bit addicted to black flowers)
Calceolaria uniflora darwinii
Primula capitatata
Roscoea tibetica
Meconopsis napaulensis
Meconopsis quintuplinervia

and also a free saxifraga
