This is another lovely flower from the Miracle-Gro woldflower mix I grew this summer that I cannot seem to identify. It's dark pink with a white/pale pink edge and grows in clumps. There were no other colours, just this dark pink. It didn't have much of a scent. The leaves are quite slender. Any help with identifying this flower would be much appreciated.

    not a rhodo, you wouldn't get that to flower in a season. It will be an annual.

     

  • Thanks nutcutlet, dunno what else it could be. Been on google images for ages and can't find anything that looks remotely like it...

  • Hello panda762.  It looks like godetia which is an annual.

    But not a wild flower.

  • Yes!!!! Well done butterflybrain (although I'm bemused as to why Miracle-Gro added it to their 'wildflower' mix). Thank you image

    I would suggest Godetia too. I grew them last year.

    These are the plants I had

  • Mattbeer87, lovely photo - yes, that's them image

  • I think that maybe they are included in the seed mix because like cosmos they are good bee plants. 

  • butterflybrain I think you're probably right image They do seem to have attracted lots of bees over the summer.
