At this time of year flowers that second bloom on a cold windy day are very welcome. This at least has the merit of being blue and is a rather nice small flowered hybrid clematis.

The Meconopsis Group met at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh yesterday. Dr. Chris Grey Wilson gave two talks based round his latest monograph on Meconopsis which has just been published. There are  new species being described as well as re- appraisals of current species particularly those based about Meconopsis 'horridula'  David and Margaret Thorn and David Rankin also made presentations. More on this when I have the minutes.
