Previously I lived in Sweden for nearly 20 years and my quest there was to hybridize auriculas to produce ever better plants suitable for the harsh Swedish climate. Whilst living there I also created and run Sweden’s Auricula Club. I've now returned to England to continue growing auriculas together with my daughter-in-law, Iris. Iris is also an enthusiastic & skilful Iris grower; many of her wonderful Irises can be seen on this blog.

Helen Rouane, Paleface, Blue Jean
Helen Rouane, Paleface and Blue Jean are a few of the few auriculas I have blooming at the moment, most of my auriculas are very late in blooming this year. Most have taken much longer to get into new growth after the prolonged winter and late spring. /Ray
