That's really pretty, all I have is the blue variety. I'll have to see if I can find pink. PS: I read somewhere that a botanist said "magenta is the color of Eden" because most wild plants have pink/magenta flowers.

The pink has a different habit of growing . It doesn't form clumps like the others so I keep it in a pot.
It seems to shoot up starts 4-6 inches away from the other shoots , makes it hard to weed around .

Be glad to send some your way
May need to wait till finish blooming then cut back by half , it seems rather tall this year , I think due to so much rain.
I grow it in one of the other gardens I tend and it is in a hot dry area and never gets more than a foot.

Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

That is really interesting. I have a wild form of tradescantia (spiderwort) that comes up as an annual every year. Forms immense clumps of foliage and gets tiny bright blue flowers. It's very pretty but can be a bit overwhelming by the end of the summer
