Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:
Soft pink flowers with white brushstroke accents make for a lovely pastel addition to any garden. Each tiny flower (or floret) has bright white markings and an orange halo around the center of the flower, to guide the pollinators to the pot of nectar waiting for them. Hummingbirds and hummingbird moths will delight and visit these beauties daily, as their sweet candy-like fragrance fills the summer air. Cotton Candy mixes well with purple, darker pinks and even yellows in mixed plantings and foundations, and will bloom from mid to late summer. This disease resistant selection comes to us form breeding in the Netherlands.
