My purchases from today's Rare Plant Fair at Kingston Bagpuize House. Astrantia major 'Star of Beauty'. Three Lysimachia Atropurpurea 'Beaujolais'. Eight thymes of various types. Three irises - 'Quechee' (garnet red, bronze beard, golden yellow centre, delicate chocolate orange scent); 'Black Tie Affair' - (the deepest purple / black flowers); 'Carnival Time' - (shades of copper, rusty orange, maroon, amber, with a golden yellow centre). There are no buds on the iris plants I bought so it will be fingers crossed that they do flower next spring. Photo 2 shows what will become a thyme carpet after being planted up.
