pink garden

And here's one of my pink garden , The iris aren't out yet of course but the daisies, geranium and wallflowers are nice and there is one other pink flowering perennial that I don't know the name of. Anyone know what it is? I have loaded the pic below. Eventually there will also be a fruiting pineapple feijoa there but as yet it is just 30cm high.This garden is below my kitchen window and the callistemon is home to lots of honeyeaters who look in the window at me.

Ooooo ooooo pick me!


The other pink flowered perennial is Centranthus ruber or Red Valerian. It can get very weedy so only let one seedhead go to see or you wil have no plant in a few years time as they can get very weedy!

Lovely garden by the way! ;)

The pink colours look great against the green foliage.
