Just in case you tried on your mobile, it did work on my PC, but doesn't on my phone at the moment!

Some really lovely plants on there, how can anyone be judgmental? Congratulations to the winners, the placed and the wrongfully ignored.

Class 5 E52 - Fockea augustifolia - Tom Radford is the wrong photo, I think. It is a duplicate of Class 5 E53 - Euphobia groenewaldii - Tom Radford.

Also, angustifolia rather than augustifolia.

Edited to add: Euphorbia rather than Euphobia.

Highly Commended in Class 6 E30 - Euphorbia gorgonis, Euphorbia boiteaui v. spirosticha - Gillian Evison

Should there be a name for the third plant?

OK, that is definitely not a Fockea angustifolia or any member of the Apocynaceae.

Cucurbit or vine relative?
