- The Large Blue Poppy (Meconopsis ’Lingholm’). This is a garden hybrid, coupled with a chromosome doubling. The plant therefore behaves like a distinct species. Our nicest specimen now is in the Rhododendron Valley. However, 10 m to the north, you can also see the true M. grandis, one of its parents. Its flowers are more violet-bluish. The red M. punicea still flowers in our Himalaya.
- The Stemless Gentian (Gentiana acaulis) on the top of the Gentiana Hill.
- Lewisias (Lewisia spp.), phloxes (Phlox spp. ) and Penstemons (Penstemon spp.) in our North America.
- Summer flowering among the North Norwegian Tradition Plants and in our Caucasus.
- Notice full bloom also outside the Garden – the meadow is now white from Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris).
- Still flowering among the rhododendrons, see the deviating Camtchatka Rhododendron (Therorhodion camtchaticum) in the uppermost part of the small valley.
