Something is amiss? How could this have happened. Have you purchased this variety?
You can’t purchase something this unique.
The little guy above makes them for free. Isn’t that interesting? Did I just discover a new cultivar or a plain old variety reverting back to its dominate parent? The charasterics of the pink bloom cross pollinated with the larger blooming white variety. I need to get to the bottom of this and try to grow the genetically altered one. I’m not sure I could find the same bee though. I’ll get a cutting of this tomorrow and see what happens.
This is pretty common but so fantastically beautiful when it happens don’t you think?
I don’t know if it is white going pink or pink going white. Looks like white going pink. What is your opinion? The neighbor azalea below looks suspiciously guilty doesn’t it?
There are no rules when it comes to wide open spaces and bees doing what bees do. Les over at A Tidewater Gardener has written a very intersting article about the cross pollination of pear trees. Everything is getting real friendly with each other. Les points out the cons of these sorts of mishaps. Does it make a plant stronger or weaker. The answer could be either. Or….it could be harmless.
