My first pink is a hardy hibiscus. I have no idea what its name is or where I got it. I have had one in my garden since I can remember. It reminds me of my childhood is why I keep it around. I also like to see the big fat bumble bees that like its nectar. They waller around in these blossoms until they are drunk and their legs are full of pollen. This is a not so hardy hibiscus. This beautiful creature was repotted to bring in this fall but someone didn't get it inside quick enough. It is a shame too because it is a beauty and is a prolific bloomer.
This is my one asiatic Lily. It gets a little darker pink when it has plenty of water. I took this picture right after a rain but it didn't get much rain this summer so it was paler than usual.
Now this darker pink is a tree peony. Sorry about the quality of picture but I couldn't find a better picture. Actually this is theonly picture I have of its blooms. I will have to rememdy that this spring.
Ihave noticed that several of my bloom pictures have insects in them. This is a carpet rose. It blooms so well for me and doesn't have many pests...other than this guy. I think he was looking for other bugs to eat tho.
My Purple cone flower sure invites lovely guests to its table.
This is a tall garden Phlox that smells heavenly.
Even the annual Million Bells is a pretty pink.
This morning glory was a nice striped pink. It bloomed like mad and grew so tall. I enjoyed it the summer I had it. It had varigated foliage which made it more interesting than some MGs.
This Queen of the Prairie is just to die for. It grows beautiful foliagethat is kind of fuzzy and then shoots a stalk up to 6'tall and has these glorious blooms that last for some time. It isn't fussy about soil. You can cut the flowers to use in bouquets too. One of my favorite pinks for sure.
This mum is pink and has a yellow center. I just love the button look of these blooms.
Last but not least I have a couple of daylilies that are pinks. This first on has a magenta vein running through it with a yellow and green throat.
