The Wild Side

When we drove to East Roxburgh on Sunday afternoon, 25 Sept, I was delighted when we drove past this glorious riot of colour along the road frontage of a private property. Few would be brave enough to layer great masses of yellow and pink blossom in the same planting but somebody’s had the courage to do just that.. and it’s breathtaking! The resultant blast of colour was as unexpected as it was explosive, and really, pretty wonderful! Central Otago, New Zealand.

  1. ‘Brave’ surprised me. Pink and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. Now that I think about it, I don’t remember seeing a lot of it in planting, but there was a wholly pink and yellow snapdragon bed last year that was stunning.

      1. I’ve been thinking about this. I need to go through my archives, just out of curiosity. I seem to remember several native wildflowers species that bloom together in yellow and pink.
