Impressions

After the warm days of the past weeks and rainstorms most nights, the Alpine Garden is shortly before peak flowering. The first flowers of Meconopsis × sheldonii are open and the mass of buds promise a good season of flowers. Meanwhile the smaller plants of Meconopsis quintuplinervia and M. henrici are in full bloom. The latter has been covered with a fine mesh as pure seed are needed for the next generation of this seldom seen Meconopsis. The meadows in close vicinity to the garden are in full flower with Primula farinosa forming carpets of flowers in Schachengrund dotted with flowering plants of Gentiana clusii and the occasional Pinguicula alpina.
