What are these???
In late October I bought a basket at Lowe's of mixed fall plants. It included a mum, a dianthus, a croton, a very small purple fountain grass--and this hot pink plant. What IS this??
I tried to get a close up of the foliage. It's a grayish green- you know like lavender. It's still in the basket although everything else but the dianthus is gone.
The flowers are really pretty, but I was very surprised to find that they also have a wonderful fragrance! The tag in the basket was lots of help--it said "mixed fall." What ARE these beautiful flowers that smell so good--and what do I do with them now?
On a planting note: between baking pies and cooking a turkey on Wednesday I managed to plant tulips, daffodils and a few hyacinths. So far the squirrels have only
dug up 3!
Happy December everyone!
