This is in a pot combination at RHS Harlow Carr and I'd love to know what it is.

Oh thanks for the reminder Laurie! I forgot to add some photos to the database entry. Will do that now. Thank You!

It certainly makes a great addition to this potted display!

Beautiful!

@kniphofia, if you have (or will) posted more pictures of your visit to RHS Harlow Carr, please include a link here.

I am a RHS member, but can only enjoy their monthly magazine (usually delivered very late by our postal service Sighing! )

That is an awesome rendition of Variegated Japanese Hops. Consider yourself very fortunate. The seeds are hard to find. I have some stored in the fridge but yours is the most awesome color I've ever seen. This is from someone that has severe variegated plant sickness:) Karen

This isn't my plant unfortunately Karen, it's being grown by the Royal Horticultural Society at their garden in Yorkshire. Would this come true from seed?
Yes I'm a RHS member too Ursula and their magazine is excellent. I do have more photos from Harlow Carr here https://www.flickr.com/photos/10681666@N04/albums/7215763413...
Can't wait for my next visit!

As long as it isn't cross pollinated with a plain green hop a good percentage of the seeds will be true.Karen

Sue, your pictures of Harlow Carr are ........ OUT OF THIS WORLD Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I have a very slow connection and made the change to Windows 10 app 12 days ago, which made my connection to the internet even slower. Only tonight I was able to download/see your pictures. Harlow Carr is beautiful, but your pictures exceed any expectations I had. Are you a professional photographer? The RHS could publish a book with your material.

I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you.

Ah how very kind you are Ursula! I've always taken photographs, I take my camera with me every day, even when I go to work, and I love visiting gardens and buildings. For me it's a lovely record of what I've seen, and if I see plants I like I take a photograph (and of the label) so that I remember it. I used to live in Yorkshire (before digital cameras) and went to Harlow Carr quite regularly then, but it's only this year that I've rejoined the RHS and visited so often.
Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my Flickr album. I very much appreciate your lovely compliments Thank You!
