'Pink Flamingo' produces its beautiful pale pink, semi-double flowers over a long period in spring. It often follows this main display with a second in mid to late summer. The blooms are then followed by attractive whiskery seed-heads. Despite its delicate appearance, it is as tough as old boots and will thrive however exposed its position. Pruning is not essential. However removing any dead or weak growth in early summer will encourage strong new growth.
