I managed to get to the greenhouse on time this year and grab enough of these beauties to make my flower boxes a bright spot of colour on sunny days.
They are so colourful, I could not resists a quick blog on them. And while I am at it, I can not forget the electric blue of the Blue Lobellias.
Moss Rose’s colours
make my flower boxes glow.
