Carsten Burkhardt's Web Project Paeonia has a Peony Database with names of peony species and cultivars from a-z with pictures of more than 3400 species & cultivars.

 

I have completed 50 of the peonies in this UK Peony index (35 of them with no photos and no peony description page and 10 with photos but the peony description pages have not been created yet).
I have diverted my attentions to which plants to use in what soils in the Plants topic and when I have completed the insertion of the plant names into the chalk, clay and sand pages
I will return to this gallery (9 November 2017) to complete its entries.
This might be after I have inserted and detailed all the plants to be shown in the Raw Camera Photo Galleries taken either by Chris Garnons-Williams or the slides of Ron and Christine Foord (which I am currently digitising in March 2020), whose index is shown in the table on the left under

PRIMULA

There are 2 main sections to this vast race of plants, European and Asiatic. The former are mostly sun lovers dwelling in open exposed rock faces while the latter are from moist, well-drained, high alpine meadows, and prefer shade in cultivation.

PRIMULA (European)

The Monograph "Primulas of Europe & America by G.F.Smith, B.Burrow & D.B.Lowe - "This is the only comprehensive monograph on the primulas of Europe and N. America. Contents include: classification of primula species; descriptions of the species in Europe and N. America; identification of European and American primulas; the natural hybrids; artificial hybrids and garden varieties; cultivation. Every species and many of the hybrids and cultivars are illustrated by colour photographs, most taken in their natural habitat, and a special feature of the book are the wonderful and botanically accurate line drawings by the late Duncan Lowe. There is also a carefully researched distribution map for each of the species." from The Alpine Garden Society Bookshop.

PRIMULA (Asiatic)

Unfortunately, the majority of the Asiatic primulas suitable for cultivation in troughs and screes in the United Kingdom are not easy plants to grow and often require great skill. All require a cool, shady, north-facing position and are best planted where rain cannot lodge on the foliage, thus setting up crown rot. Use of rock and glass as methods of protection will assist materially in growing these very desirable plants!

Naturalize -
The practice of growing certain plants under as natural conditions as possible.
For example; daffodils are said to be naturalized when they are planted in grass and left to look after themselves.
The term is also used to describe plants from foreign countries which have established themselves so well in the country into which they have been introduced that they behave like native plants; and are able to maintain themselves without the aid of the gardener.

Form of Perennials, Annuals, Bulbs, Climbers:-
Mat-forming.
Stems densely cover the ground and the flowers extend above.
Prostrate or Trailing.
Stems spread out on the ground and the flowers are borne close to the foliage.
Cushion or Mound-forming.
Tightly packed stems form a low clump and the flowers are close to the foliage.
Spreading or Creeping.
Stems extend horizontally then ascend, forming a densely packed mass.
Clump-forming.
Leaf-stalks and flower stems arise at ground level to form a dense mass.
Stemless.
Leaf-stalks and flower stems arise at ground level.
Erect or Upright.
Upright stems stand vertical, supporting leaves and the flowers.
Climbing and Scandent.
Long flexible stems are supported by other plants or structures.
Arching.
Long upright stems arch over from the upright towards the ground.

What to do about Subsidence caused by Clay? Page explains what to do about trees/shrubs/hedges that may damage the foundations of your property.
What happened to a new building, which was caused by the builder, 6 years after it was built. The new owner was then landed with a large bill. The Builder warranty is first 2 years, then years 3-10 can be covered by NHBC Buildmark.

Most modern houses cannot afford large shrubs, trees or hedges within 10 feet = 120 inches = 300cms of a house wall or a garden wall, so it is best to use:-
Growing Edibles in Containers inside your home,
and
Soft Fruit List with soft fruit bush (Blueberry, Gooseberry, Blackcurrant, Redcurrant, Whitecurrant or Jostaberry) instead of a shrub from the shrub lists provides you with the size of shrub suitable for most current gardens.
The Raspberry may be used as a mini-hedge in the garden to separate areas or against your boundary fences/walls.
The Blackberry, Boysenberry and Tayberry cane climbers can also be used as mini-hedges or to clothe walls/fences/pergolas.
They all provide you with edible fruit. The Soft Fruit Gallery compares colour photographs of some soft fruits,
and
Choosing a top fruit tree or remaining top fruit instead of a tree from the tree list provides you with a plant of a size that is suitable for most current gardens. These trees also produce edible fruit. Further details in these galleries -
Top Fruit Apple, Cherry, Pear
or
You could use 1 of the trees from the Deciduous and Evergreen Trees suitable for Small Gardens.

------

The overall amount of sunlight received depends on aspect, the direction your garden faces:-
North-facing gardens get the least light and can be damp.
South-facing gardens get the most light.
East-facing gardens get morning light.
West-facing gardens get afternoon and evening light.

-----

Acid Site - An acid soil has a pH value below 7.0. Clay soils are usually acid and retentive of moisture, requiring drainage. The addition of grit or coarse sand makes them more manageable. Peaty soil is acidic with fewer nutrients and also requires drainage.
Alkaline Soil - An alkaline soil has a pH value above 7.0. Soils that form a thin layer over chalk restrict plant selection to those tolerant of drought.
Bank / Slope problems include soil erosion, surface water, summer drought and poor access (create path using mattock to pull an earth section 180 degrees over down the slope). Then, stabilise the earth with 4 inches (10cms) depth of spent mushroom compost under the chicken wire; before planting climbers/plants through it.
Cold Exposed Inland Site is an area that is open to the elements and that includes cold, biting winds, the glare of full sun, frost and snow - These plants are able to withstand very low temperatures and those winds in the South of England.

These are neat and shapely, thus being trees for the tidy gardener. The narrowness of the tree means that bands of dense shade sweep across the garden - never creating dense shade in one area all day.

Surface soil moisture is the water that is in the upper 10 cm (4 inches) of soil, whereas root zone soil moisture is the water that is available to plants, which is generally considered to be in the upper 200 cm (80 inches) of soil:-
Wet Soil has Saturated water content of 20-50% water/soil and is Fully saturated soil.
Moist Soil has Field capacity of 10-35% water/soil and is Soil moisture 2–3 days after a rain or irrigation.
Dry Soil has Permanent wilting point of 1-25% water/soil and is Minimum soil moisture at which a plant wilts.
Residual water content of 0.1-10% water/soil and is Remaining water at high tension.
Available Water Capacity for plants is the difference between water content at field capacity and permanent wilting point.

-----

Dust and Pollution Barrier - Plants with large horizontal leaves are particularly effective in filtering dust from the environment, with mature trees being capable of filtering up to 70% of dust particles caused by traffic. Plants can also help offset the pollution effects of traffic. 20 trees are needed to absorb the carbon dioxide produced by 1 car driven for 60 miles.
Front of Border / Path Edges - Soften edges for large masses of paving or lawn with groundcover plants. Random areas Within Paths can be planted with flat-growing plants. Other groundcover plants are planted in the Rest of Border.

-----

Sun Aspect:-
Full Sun: At least 6 full hours of direct sunlight. Many sun lovers enjoy more than 6 hours per day, but need regular water to endure the heat.
Part Shade: 3 - 6 hours of sun each day, preferably in the morning and early afternoon. The plant will need some relief from the intense late afternoon sun, either from shade provided by a nearby tree or planting it on the east side of a building.
Dappled Sun - DS in Part Shade Column: Dappled sunlight is similar to partial shade. It is the sun that makes its way through the branches of a deciduous tree. Woodland plants and underplantings prefer this type of sunlight over even the limited direct exposure they would get from partial shade.
Full Shade: Less than 3 hours of direct sunlight each day, with filtered sunlight during the rest of the day. Full shade does not mean no sun.

-----

Seaside Plants that deal with salt-carrying gales and blown sand; by you using copious amounts of compost and thick mulch to conserve soil moisture.
Sound Barrier - The sound waves passing through the plant interact with leaves and branches, some being deflected and some being turned into heat energy. A wide band of planting is necessary to achieve a large reduction in the decibel level.
Wind Barrier - By planting a natural windbreak you will create a permeable barrier that lets a degree of air movement pass through it and provide shelter by as far as 30 times their height downwind.
Woodland ground cover under the shade of tree canopies.

Prunus - Cherry
There are further details concerning Soil, Sun Aspect and Soil Moisture levels in the Top Fruit Page of the Plants Section, together with the cherry rootstock details of Gisela 5, Colt and Prunus F.12.1 that determine the potential natural height of the cherry tree.

This plant gallery has thumbnail pictures of cherry shapes available in container grown form for the following uses:-

  • 7 feet high Patio Tree from Gisela 5 rootstock. Use in pots on patios for any size garden.
  • 7 feet high Bush from Gisela 5 rootstock. Plant as fruit bushes in the garden instead of 7 feet high ornamental shrubs.
  • 10 feet high Bush from Colt rootstock. Plant as 10 feet wide tree or lawn bush in large gardens.
  • 10 feet high Fan from Colt rootstock. Train in any size garden onto 6 feet high support structure on fences or walls.
  • 10 feet high Half Standard from Colt rootstock. Plant as classic lawn tree for large gardens.

This plant gallery has thumbnail pictures of cherry shapes available in bare root form for the following uses:-

  • (o)Maiden Gisela 5 for training or hedging
  • (o)Maiden Colt for training or hedging
  • Maiden F.12.1 for training or hedging
  • 10 feet high Bush from Colt rootstock. Plant as fruit bushes in the garden instead of 10 feet high ornamental shrubs.
  • 10 feet high Half Standard from Colt rootstock. Plant as medium-sized trees for large gardens/orchards.

To ensure that the cherry blossom is pollinated by the bees, then another cherry tree from the same or adjacent flowering group ( Group A with Group A or B, Group B with Group A or Group C, etc ) should be present within a short distance.

"The Plant Heritage-NNCPG states the following:- "The Demeter® Project, our computer database which will ensure that precious plant knowledge is captured and stored consistently and securely". I trust that this database Persephone is not the one that I created and paid for during my year as the NCCPG Plant Exchange Coordinator, which 6 area groups were using for the Plant Exchange and on which I had put National Collections during that year. When it was denounced by those 6 areas at the AGM and I then also realised that it was only the management who owned all the material and that the areas had nothing but were told what to do by the management; and that management then took the credit for what those area groups and the National Collection Holders did at Garden Shows, I withdrew my permission for them to use it." from Phlomis russeliana page.

Cultural Needs of Plants
from Chapter 4 in Fern Grower's Manual by Barbara Joe Hoshizaki & Robbin C. Moran. Revised and Expanded Edition. Published in 2001 by Timber Press, Inc. Reprinted 2002, 2006. ISBN-13:978-0-

"Understanding Fern Needs
Ferns have the same basic growing requirements as other plants and will thrive when these are met. There is nothing mysterious about the requirements - they are not something known only to people with green thumbs - but the best gardeners are those who understand plant requirements and are careful about satisfying them.
What, then, does a fern need?

All plants need water.
Water in the soil prevents roots from drying, and all mineral nutrients taken up by the roots must be dissolved in the soil water. Besides water in the soil, most plants need water in the air. Adequate humidity keeps the plant from drying out. Leaves need water for photosynthesis and to keep from wilting.
All green plants need light to manufacture food (sugars) by photosynthesis. Some plants need more light than others, and some can flourish in sun or shade. Most ferns, however, prefer some amount of shade.
For photosynthesis, plants require carbon dioxide, a gas that is exhaled by animals as waste. Carbon dioxide diffuses into plants through tiny pores, called stomata, that abound on the lower surface of the leaves. In the leaf, carbon dioxide is combined with the hydrogen from water to form carbohydrates, the plant's food. This process takes place only in the presence of light and chlorophyll, a green pigment found in plant cells. To enhance growth, some commercial growers increase the carbon dioxide level in their greenhouses to 600ppm (parts per million), or twice the amount typically found in the air.
Plants need oxygen. The green plants of a plant do not require much oxygen from the air because plants produce more oxygen by photosynthesis than they use. The excess oxygen liberated from the plants is used by all animals, including humans. What do plants do with oxygen? They use it just as we do, to release the energy stored in food. We use energy to move about, to talk, to grow, to think - in fact, for all our life processes. Although plants don't talk or move much, they do grow and metabolize and must carry on all their life processes using oxygen to release the stored energy in their food.
Roots need air all the time. They get it from the air spaces between the soil particles. Overwatering displaces the air between soil particles with water, thereby removing the oxygen needed by the roots. This reduces the root's ability to absorb mineral nutrients and can foster root-rot.
Plants need minerals to grow properly. The minerals are mined from the soil by the plant's root system. If a certain mineral is missing, such as calcium needed for developing cell walls, then the plant will be stunted, discoloured, or deformed.
Some plants tolerate a wide range of temperatures, whereas others are fussy. If the temperature is too high or low, the machinery of the plant will not operate satisfactorily or will cease entirely.

The basic needs of plants are not hard to supply, but growing success depends on attending to these needs with care and exactitude. The remainder of this chapter is devoted to a discussion of these requirements, with the exception of mineral needs, which are discussed in Chapter 5."

 

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
