Ground Hugging Alpines, Harlow Carr, Harrogate 2nd October 2015

Some of the most fascinating plants in the Alpine House at the RHS gardens at Harlow Carr are the alpines that hug the rock. They often have brilliant coloured flowers but do not have to be in bloom to catch the eye. My own alpines grown outdoors never look like these, the combination of drought, soaking, wind and weeds marring the effect but a man can dream.
