Variegated wallflower

Different experience for me Rhod....Bowles mauve yes but the variegated sort often killed by cutting back hard.

Morning everyone 

blue Sky, sun out there and dry.  Chilly feel but temps on the rise I think.

Agreed but my method is to take cuttings every year and choose the best coloured pieces.  Short lived anyway and first year plants are best.  

Actually I pull off rather than cut green shoots. no Amadeus. If you take a green shoot your new plant will be green too.

I grow just one Mollis pallida. it is nice, scented, and attractive.  Easily pruned but so far I have done very little of that in 6 years.  I think there are more colourful varieties now and possibly stronger scented
