Pink Achillea and Malope

I love the Malope flowers, like dark rose satin. A free packet of seeds, annuals and they're stunning..

Yes Julia, Malope trifida vulcan...
I hadn't seen it before either and they were an illustration on the packet not a photograph, so a very nice surprise..:))

I must look them out. The satiny shine sings out. Thanks for showing.

I've never seen them before, a beautiful colour and they look so tactile. My Achillea are nowhere near out yet

Thanks Wildrose, they turned out much better than I thought..:)

I think they're an.old cottage garden flower Ange, and the flowers are much larger than shown on the illustration..

I hadn't Resinone, I'm really pleased with them.
This achillea always flowers early.

Another pic I managed to miss! I’m unfamiliar with the malope too - very good description -pink satin sheen..it definitely sits well with the achillea.

They've just about finished now Kate, but they've been tall and such a vibrant colour, worth growing for a change...
