Foxglove 'Illumination Pink'

Illumimation pink sadly not greatest plant for me.  I helped its demise by removing them.  The white usual foxgloves this year have been womderful.  Illumimation Pink has no style, class or simple beauty.

hardy gerberas fine with me.  Still have 2 after a few years but not a star for me

Yes,,for sure, Meomye.  Cut off old flowered stems as you see them.  Sooner the better for repeat flowers.
