Unreal how pretty it is.
They are stunning flowers and look just like crepe paper.
My grandma had some of those in her yard but they were pink. I agree they are stunning.
I have a down-the-street neighbor that plants the lavender ones. In digging for correct names, I found pictures of some yellow ones.
Please will you post them? I’ve never seen lavender or yellow ones before!
I haven’t seen any yellow ones around here for me to photograph on my own but, here is an example of one (scroll down a bit):
I do have a shot or two of a purple one that I got back in May.
These are lavender, to me but, they are listed as “grey”:
Those purple ones are gorgeous!
I love them. They are bright, sassy and Very short lived. I wish they could bloom all season
I totally agree, Momma!
Wowza! Simply gorgeous!!
I adore them.
Again perfection…you don’t mess with mother nature…or so the old commercial goes. That looks like a post card.
For several years, the Masons planted them in front of the Lodge. They haven’t done it in a coupe of years, now.
Thanks. Point and click with ye olde phone.
It gets no better than that.
