The yellow creeping Snapdragon


By Siris

The yellow creeping Snapdragon (Asarina procumbens)

The yellow flowers of the trailing Snapdragon, self seeded into adjacent pots in the conservatory and under the carport. I plant them in the front of borders but they do seem to prefer a bit of shelter.

Another one that's new to me, very pretty :-)

The flowers are as large as a bedding Snapdragon, but along a trailing stem. From RhS seed originally. I'll keep you some for next year if you want.

Ooo that would be lovely Siris, thankyou :-)
Hope the RHS seed schemes better this year last year wasn't very impressive not the same choice as usual, I'm in two minds whether to cancel my membership, I don't make a lot of use of it, but the seed scheme I did like.

I stopped my membership with the RHS ages ago, 2005, still have a stack of magazines, the seed germination requirements leaflet and many of the plants I raised from the seed. Took advantage of the member's ticket scheme, once to Hampton Court flower show, Chelsea, Gardeners world live at NEC and some of the partner gardens during my membership. Now I would prefer to visit places when they are quieter, hate the crowds in London.
Ps although one has to put in the latin name for photos it does not seem to appear on the page unless you put it in the title so Asarina procumbens.
There seems to be a reminder page, will look at that to remind me of the seed rather than a scappy piec of paper. And the white Scabious?

I was all set to cancel then OH pointed out he retires next year so we'll have more time to visit a few more RHS gardens, at the moment its usually Harlow Carr a couple of times a year.Never been to Hampton Court or Chelsea but have been to Gardeners World a couple of times, I hate the crowds too, saying that we're going to Harrogate Autumn show in a couple of weeks but that's not quite as bad as the bigger shows.
Oooo yes please to the white scabious :-)

I am assuming the seeds are the tuffty bits in the centre, yes, which are already ready. I can send these shortly, so you can sow now or fridge as you please. Do you want some of my insurance ( against loss) seed of my reddish Dierama, Oenothera sp? and Geranium incanum, see my photos.

Yes that's them Siris:-), I'd love some of the Dierama please I lost all my seed grown ones in the cold winters they'd just got to flowering size and looked gorgeous too :-(, the geranium too please :-), evening primrose I have a couple a tall yellow and Sunset Boulevarde which I've grown this year for the first time, did have a white but that's disappeared.
I know you said you don't grow a lot of seed but if you see anything of mine you'd like just ask I collect seed from lots of things :-)

The Evening primrose starts lemon yellow and changes to an apricot pink colour, 1.2 m. Apparently it 's going to rain Monday ,so I'll clean the seed and send shortly.
Thanks for the offer of seeds, you probably realise that I'm not backward in coming forward! Lol

Flowers better inside or under the carport, just that bit of protection makes a difference.
