22nd June 2020 – Snippets of Wealth – includes: RUSTY BACK FERN, SQUINANCYWORT, DARK RED HELLEBORINES ETC ETC.


(Below) I was lucky yesterday to find a small population of asplenium ceterach (Rusty Back Fern) on Hutton Roof, only the fourth population I have ever recorded on HR.  There were three separate colonies to which you see the individual groups below.

33i



(Below) Starting off today with this little beauty which is new this year and knowing the history of the area is probably another low-vigour hybrid

41 (variagated area)



(Below) is 41 a new plant this year 2020, a beauty and thought to be a hybrid. It is very close within 3ft to the old "variagated" and in close proximity to both E.helleborine and E.atrorubens. 15" 25 flowers/buds - Photo taken on 22nd June 2020

15f

(Below) 15f is a beauty just starting to come through, it has been there for many years but normally gets predated before you see it's splendour. Considered a hybrid. Photo taken 22nd June 2020.

Escarp 17 (below)





Escarp 18

(Below) this is a beauty which is a bicolor specimen. 




Escarp West No.1

(Below) Another beauty to get ready for, strong light green stem indicating possible introgression



17L

(Below) is a long established plant, although this year it bears very few flowers. Always has a strong hyperchromic look to it




17W - bicolor





From the 70s population

(Below) Now this is what I sometimes dont like about Mr. Brown Hare, were he snips and leaves part of the stem and the inflorescence dangling... 



From the 9s population

(Below) this looks very interesting and comes from the 9s population which has so many specimens with introgression.  Here is a example of a stem which shows two colours eg: a classic atrorubens purple, yet there is introgression of probable helleborine showing its light green stem



9m

This is one I found a few days ago and probably at it's very best. Photo taken on 22nd June 2020.





60

(Below) this is a new finding this year although I'll bet its been around for sometime. Its certainly a beauty with that brownish general look to it.
