Alpine Cuties

Despite the news reports of snow, snow, snow, by yesterday the City of Denver was back to springtime green, green, green!

I spent an hour with my camera at Denver Botanic Gardens and was especially tickled to see so many of the trough gardens in bloom. Most of these are filled with little alpine plants that I know very little (read, nothing) about but still enjoy for their interesting textures and delicate blooms. OK, I’ll hazard a guess and say that perhaps something here is a Saxifraga or a Lewisia.

Although several of our local nurseries offer a small selection of rock garden plants, you may want to check out Laporte Avenue Nursery in Fort Collins. They sell primarily via catalog, but are open to the public by appointment.
