                  I never seem to remember whether our cacti, succulents etc. all classify as alpines and we also have some plants that look like they do but I don't know whether they come into any of the categories.

                  We have lots in the garden, in pots and dozens in the greenhouse that have been there for 40+ years. The ones in the greenhouse get a bit overwhelmed by everything around them.

                  Just a few quick shots:-

                  This is growing in a rather neglected flower bed
                  P1430918.JPG

                  This is in the same bed but I found it hidden under a red ants' nest and had to hose the nest away

                      Is the Suicide Lily a Gladioli species?

                      Yep. @longk

                      Gladiolus flanaganii

                      It's called the Suicide Lily because you'd be committing suicide to get up close to it in its native habitat on steep cliff faces in the Drakensburgs.
