These Ameria are so striking, and just the right size for my tiny garden. I'm thinking of maybe growing them with chives next year, if possible, for lovely purples and pinks, as well as the chives being functional! I read a book recently of the virtues of using 'useful' plants with simply pretty plants in beds and it's fascinating!
There's a lack of blue in our very pink beds, even though they are in their infancy, so I bought this today at the GC, though I've been very naughty and forgotten the name!
My favourite at the moment, I love how pretty the purple buds are on the silver stems, and then you get such an intense pink colour, with a lovely scent which I discovered today, I believe it's called Dianthus?
My very first lilac! It's starting to lose it's flowers, though I hope it continues to bloom year after year!
And the very dirty container area overrun with seedlings which need to be potted up and planted into the bed. So much to do, so little time! Can't say I'm a fan of all the clutter!
