I'm not a fan of pink...


...but I do like how this container is shaping up so far.

The plant with the pink leaves is called Hypoestes. I chose the mix of flowers to match the pink leaves.
I've never tried this plant before, and I'm pleased that it's doing well in all of my containers.

Those snapdragons are gorgeous!! They are my favorites. I have some of those pink leaves also in my pots on my deck. They are so pretty. I also have them in a redish/hot pink color. :)

Oh boy....you don't want to see my gardens. I plant nothing but pink, white, blue and lavendar with emphasis on pink....I sometimes throw some yellow into the mix also. I even pinked out house color out to match pink gardens...lol.

Laura - Snapdragons are one of my favorites, too!

Kristina - I'm sure your gardens are beaautiful! I KNOW they are, from the few pics I've seen! I realized a couple of years ago that almost every flower in my garden is some shade of purple! (Makes sense...it's one of my favorite colors.) I have branched out to a few yellows and whites. There are a couple of pink-blooming perennials, but not many! I love flowers so much that I can deal with a little pink in the garden! :-) But no red! lol

Pretty!:) I like the pink and the hypoestes reminds me of coleus.

Very pretty! I love the hypoestes. (I had no idea what those were called!) I'm going to have to see about getting some of those. :)

I love snapdragons; they remind me of my grandad's garden back in England :) Your container looks fabulous!
