I go back as far as inkwells in school desks. White flowers turn blue if you put them in the ink
Some teachers didn't appreciate the scientific nature of our experiments
Possibly Ptelia trifoliata
Hi Edd, wasn't there a thread sometime last year with multicoloured roses and blue strawberries?
Perhaps they're dip dyed like the heathers
Are we talking about Rosa 'Mucky Mauve' here?
Don't waste your money.
That's possible Berghill. The bulb was on its own and not part of a new planting of bulbs that might have contained a stray.
The bulb now has seed pods forming in the style of muscari. Thanks Berghill and obelixx
The baby has 2 more pairs of leaves and looks like a lilac.
I've planted one where it will drop its seeds on the lawn. I might save a pot grow a few as well.
Lots of weeding and attacked by ants
They are very good self seeders
A lot of us have to prune them right back most years because the top growth is dead. They come back and I think they grow better on the years they've been cut back
