Impressions

Every morning there’s something new to discover. Today the first flowers of Lilium lophophorum finally opened; like pale yellow Chinese lanterns they dance in the breeze on their short stems. Yesterday Iris reichenbachii was waiting to be admired and tomorrow …?

Peak flowering – for most it is the best time in the Alpine Garden. The stage is set by the heavenly blue of the Meconopsis against a backdrop of Himalaya Primulas in varying nuances of yellow and wine red. Campanula thyrsoides is regarded with astonishment and wonder at its ramrod straight flower spikes. The notoriously difficult Nomocharis lilies light up a shady corner. All this and more greets the visitors to the Alpine Garden.

Come and enjoy the delights and beauty of the Schachen!
