Rick, I´ve grown P. terminalis but procumbens looks more exotic!

Yes, it is lovely!  P. terminalis barely survives here (the neighbour grows it), not sure it's ever managed to flower.  I assume P. procumbens is less hardy?

A few plants from my woodland today:

Anemone prattii with huge flowers. This one has 4 petals, but 5 is common.

 

 

Ariaema elephas coming strong              Convallaria majalis var rosea, the fragrance is beautiful but the colour is not. Melittis melissophyllum

   

 

Primula alpicola? and                                Primula heucherifolia?, both from seeds last year.

A few more from the woodland as it isn't much flowering in my new rock garden. The sunny and dry weather we have now is not easy for the new plants in the sandy soil there! I've already lost some although I water as often as I can.

The plants growing in the shade of the trees and shrubs do better although it is starting to be very dry there too!

 

Allium triquetrum    Anemone narcissiflora(?) pink form from seed several years ago - first flowers. Polygonatum prattii(?)

   

 

Arisaema candidissumum    Arisaema elephas(?) has made a nice group     An unknown Arisaema

     

 

Meconopsis sp from Chadwell seeds, a prickly biennial species.   And finally the unknown Roscoe species.

I would suggest that it's Roscoea humeana Trond, smiley

53.69° N, Dedicated to West Coast Fritillaria, plus three other members of the subgenus Liliorhiza. I grow other Genera, as time permits !
