The chimeric lavatera

Last year I reported on the tendency of my ‘Barnsley’ lavatera to revert to type. This season, that trend is confirmed: there are really few pretty, very pale pink ‘Barnsley’ type flowers left. The majority of the flowers are a plain pink ‘Rosea’ type. The 2 cuttings taken last year are still too young to flower, but I continue to observe them.

Reversion to type on the three quarters left of the plant - June 2021
