Whats this I saw this at a recent garden visit I was told what it was but forget.
Having said that If you guess right I will remember the name.
It is a silver plant and grows well in damp conditions, approx 25cms tall, nice flower as you can see.

Looks like Celmisia sp.
Maybe Celmisia coriacea.

A mountain plant from New Zealand.

Thanks Greengage.
I am afraid that I have never been to Ireland.
It is a place I really want to go to.
You have many wonderful gardens I would like to visit.
As well as stunning scenery.
