About Blushing Meadow Mama

Blushing Meadow Mama has pure white petals accented by a blush pink halo, like a blushing bride in a pure white gown. Strong stems and olive green leaves are the perfect foil for the softly colored, yet strong blooms. A cone the color of a red velvet cupcake makes for the perfect cherry on top of a nearly perfect perennial.
