Dark blue, bell-shaped Alpine Gentians in the Gentian collection.
Intensely red Meconopsis punicea i Himalaya. This one is in the same genus as the famous blue poppies (just single flowers open yet), but dies after flowering, and needs to be renewed by seeds. Their long, elegant and pending petals look like a silken cloth used in Himalayan prayer flags.
The nice, cushion-shaped and white-flowered forget-me-not from New Zealand (Myosotis cf. pulvinaris),
Polemonium boreale, an arctic jacob’s ladder in the upper plateau of our Arctic. A very rare species known from a single site in mainland Norway, but more common in Svalbard. In the southern entrance to our Arctic: the rare lousewort Pedicularis groenlandica – pinkflowers with tiny elephant trunks.
