Winter flowers

It was great to see the RHS garden coming to life last weekend. Not only were there snowdrops, but also daffodils, miniature cyclamen, winter aconite and dwarf crested iris. Here is a macro shot of a winter blooming camellia.

This is Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Grandiflora.’ An unusual looking flower, which according to the RHS, is generally pest and disease free. It originates from the Himalayas and was introduced in the 1850’s. It is tricky to cultivate, but produces fragrant blooms if successful.
