Pin Cushion Flower SOLD



My pincusion flowers are very pretty this year. I had a variety of colored ones several years ago that I grew from seed. My husband was trying to be helpful and fight the weeds. He used weed killer all over my garden and yep all of my flowers died. That was a couple of years ago. This lavendar color is the only one I can find at the garden center. They do come in white, light pink, and a darker burgandy color.

Linda, Love the background and the colors. Never heard of a pincushion flower, they look interesting. Aren't husbands wonderful? They try to help but sometimes do the most crazy things.

Pincushion flower is new to me. This is the first time I've heard of it. Next time I am at the nursery I'm going to see if I can find it. They look so delicate.

I like your flower paintings. I would like to see your garden - you have so many varieties of beautiful flowers! Nice color palette on this one and the composition is good.

Beautiful flowers Linda, both the subject and the painting. I've never heard of pin cushion flowers either, but they are pretty!
