Plantaholic POST:

The only drawback to this juicy green and practically white flower is the name.  Schizostylis coccinea ‘Pink Marge’.

It has never grown well for me  but looks dreamy right now in a customer’s free-draining garden.   Cohabiting with the black grass Ophiopogon planascapus ‘Nigrescens’ and a shimmery grass Molinia caerulea ‘Edith Dudszus‘.

    Thank you for your kind comment Catharine – we will miss our crazy viszla very much.
    You are on my blog feed and I always enjoy reading your posts.
    I too love contrasting the purity of white flowers with the wonderful black grass, it is a combination that never fails to draw comment and admiration.
    Best wishes, Cat @ Abriachan

    That’s a very dainty looking flower. I don’t think we have it locally here.

    How unique that this cultivar is white and yet has a species name of “coccinea”. Maybe this is where “schizo” comes in? 😀

    That is a beauty and a plant that I would not find here.

    I much prefer this subtle colour to the bright lipstick pink version we grow. But whatever colour it flowers it’s socks off all summer here. Good value plant.

    The Schizostylis is indeed a plant that is worthy of a place in the garden. We have the more garish one which is still flowering its socks off. Very much a late Autumn/Winter plant up here in Aberdeen.
