Yes Philippa, different plants I think.
The pink ones are pink....not red fading to pink. I,think the pink is the most widespread around here but the red and white ones are beautiful......in the wild.
No wildlife expert, no real knowledge of wild plants, but at times nature is fantastic. On our towans she grows yellow evening primrose and vipers buglos...blue spires.....the various valerians, saponaria, wild orchids, montbretia, wild gladioli, and plants I do not know the name of. All complementing one another beautifully. Towards the cliffs thrift covers huge areas and of course gorse......that fantastic vanilla smell. lemon thyme too grows everywhere......walking on it releases lovely lemon scents.
