Anemone "Robustissima", Begonia grandis ssp. evansiana and...pink impatiens. You'd think that pink was my favourite colour. It's not, really
It was not planned this way. I would still prefer white hardy begonias, but pink was all Brent and Becky's had last year. I was disappointed by the small size of the bulbs they mailed but the plants produced from them reproduced so prolifically that my terrace is a mass of their offspring, this year. I can't tell how many I threw away, after pulling them up from the gravel, and after giving dozens away. So if you want to start a bulb business hardy begonias are the way to go.
I need more white, more blue. At the open gardens day in Nutley I was happy and surprised to meet Maria (whom I know from this blog by the Dickensian handle of "Maria, Plainfield Resident"), who very kindly brought me a Plectranthus "Mona Lavender", as a gift. Funny - South African flowers via New Jersey They are a very good blue. Thank you, Maria! Y mucho gusto.
