Here are some of the plants of interest in Cambridge University Botanic Garden in Autumn 1997 and through into Spring 1998. First in the glasshouses in November:
Callistemon citrinus: a 'Bottle-Brush', in the glasshouses.
We had a very dry and warm February, making plants think Spring had arrived, but April has brought lots of rain, and cold.
Arisarum proboscideum: the 'Mouse plant', in the woodland.
Fritillaria meleagris: the 'Snake's head fritillary'.
Lathraea clandestina: the parasitic 'Purple toothwort'.
Strongylodon macrobotrys: the 'Jade vine', in the glasshouses.
