A pink achimenes that was recommended by our exotic bulb farmer in India, this is the first season weve offered Pink Clouds so were having fun growing it this year, too. Flowering in slightly varied shades of pink, this achimenes performs beautifully in dappled sunlight or light shade, the type of environment often found on porches and window boxes that decorate homes in established neighborhoods with mature trees. 20 bulbs will fill approximately 4 feet of window box space. Mixes nicely with pink or pink-edged tuberous begonias.
