Wow2!  The second photo is great, revealing such variation in flower color. Very nice.

Here are some magnificent examples from the beautiful Rundle Wood gardens (a private garden which is also the display garden for an excellent small alpine and perennial nursery) from the first CRAGS open garden, last weekend:

I was surprised to find how late spring is here, even in the "tropical south" parts of the city!  (I live in the high, northwest hinterlands.  ;D)

Great show! I haven`t looked to see if they have their 2011 catalogue out...

Michel, you know how to make me jealous  ;) I can hardly wait till my few plants come up in a month or so - however they are all in the garden!

Do you know what kind of creature that nibbles your plant?
I have lost some plants in the garden, not to slugs - or maybe slugs too - but to a kind of insect, small beetles or something which destroy the leaves :(

I suspect Earwigs (Forficula auricularia.) they prefer aphids but as I don't appear to have any this year yet (touch wood) I think they are nibbling the flowers. I go out at night with a torch looking for the culprit but can't find anything. I don't think I have any vine weevils either as I have treated all the vulnerable plants.
Maggi Young thinks it might be sparrows.
