Lol @anges They start out all yellow & gradually change to all pink. First time I've tried these & really pleased with them 😊

It’s such a lovely plant. Every time I see it I love it a bit more 😍 really makes me think of buddleja because of the orange centre 😅

Thanks Kerry. The bigger it's got the better it becomes I think. Can't wait to see my other seedlings of it flower @kez001uk

@jeatacake does it stay in the greenhouse permanently or will you put it outside once it’s more established?

@kez001uk It certainly will over winter or in the house (If I have room) I will try it out in the open ground next summer, but it'll never survive winters outside here, even when well established.

@jeatacake such a shame all these really gorgeous flowers don’t survive our weather. A good excuse to move somewhere warmer 🤣
