Oh Janette, please don't take this to heart, but I think that the pink ones are an eyesore!! They're my pet hate of the year!!!
Better luck with them next year though.

No worry,s there Meanie I,d rather have the red ones myself ....not that keen on the pink they always seem so washed out ....

I really have to grow some of these...I have the great blue and it's chuffing right along. Heard that the reds were more difficult to grow. Love that good strong red though.

A lovely display, what a beautiful colour, Janette. Are the Lobelia Cardinalis very hardy?We get very cold winters but I would love to grow them.
