The name sounds enticing all on its own, don't you think?? I sure did. It intrigued me so much I had to try them out just to see what a 'pink feather' morning glory would look like. Here's the answer:
Aaahhh ~ a girly-girls bloom (code for my kind of thing.) Lots of fluffy, frilly pinkness with buds that even look like ice cream cones:
Almost good enough to eat, right?? Here's a top view of the bud, equally mouth watering:
and a lone luscious bloom growing up alongside the birdhouse:
'Pink Feathers' exceeded my expectations to say the least.
Seeds were obtained thru Summer Hill Seeds ~ my first time ordering from them and service was excellent ~ I'll definitely be a repeat customer. Only a few seeds came in the packet, of which two germinated ~ but no more is necessary. Those two seedlings have climbed my birdhouse tuteur and are twining around everything:
I love when blooms match or surpass conceptions ~ especially when trying something unknown & new. I will put this seed back on my list to plant again, unless you all put a run on them and leave none for me! ;-)
p.s. I have gone days and days without posting and now two new posts, two days straight. Probably not the new norm, but when the mood strikes, go with it, right?!!!
