This is one of my all-time favourite flowers, but can be quite difficult to get here in Australia. Thankyou for posting this picture
Why? Is it not common flowers in Australia?
So beautiful! Thank you for sharing them.
You are welcome! I am glad you like it, too! 🙂
I just planted them in my garden. They seem pretty hardy so far. How can they be used medicinally?
