Not Pink in Bedford Tx
Blush Pink is touted as "stunning pink growth" It's more like a mottled purple gray, nothing stunning about it. I have some in full sun and partial sun. I spread cotton burr compost around the plants and epsoma slow release fertilizer. To give it a head start I used liquid all purpose Miracle grow. Our soil PH is in the 7 range. Still no stunning pink.
Does anyone know how to get that stunning pink?
Will keep you posted if anything changes.
