Knautia disappointment

Lovely healthy plants, growing well, but very disappointed that instead of the expected deep maroon colour pictured, at least four of the six plants are pink.

Fantastic success, they get better every year, are beautiful in a mixed border and the insects and bees love them, better still they need minimum attention, would highly recommend

Strong healthy plants, shame about the colour

Strong healthy plants which have grown brilliantly however a bit disappointed in the colour which is a mid tone pink rather than the colour pictured!
