The good summer weather of the past weeks with much needed rain and the following mists have allowed the plants to fully develop and flower. On the way up to the Alpine Garden keep your eyes open for Saxifraga caesia and Campanula cochlearifolia both of which can be found flourishing in rock crevices. Gentiana pannonica is coming into flower on the steep meadows behind Schachenhaus. In the Alpine Garden a diverse abundance of plants from the Himalaya, Alps and the Caucasus’ are in full flower. The plants growing in the Lesotho beds are coming into flower. It’s a great time to visit the Garden; we’ve reached the halfway mark, only six weeks until we close!

Most of the different Lilies are open or opening while various Meconopsis species and the Himalaya Primulas are in full flower. There’s lots to see so come and visit!

Just over a week ago the Alpine Garden opened for the summer. After a cold start, with snow last Saturday, the days are warming up and it seems that every day the number of flowers doubles. The beautiful blue flowers of Wulfenia carinthiaca cover a small hillock near the hut, attracting numerous bees and bumblebees. The first Lilium martagon flowers have opened and Lilium kesselringianum is not far behind. The buds on the Meconopsis × sheldonii are showing colour and will soon open.

We hope that you will visit and enjoy our garden with us.
