red?

Does this also occur in the wild as red, or would that be a cultivated variety. I had something very similar growing in my garden, but with a red flower a week or two ago, but it soon lost its petals.

Hi John

The naturally occurring form of Globeflower is yellow. However plant breeding has produced a number of different colour forms. An interesting page on the plant and its cultivation can be found at:

Hope that helps

Best regards

thanks

Can't find a red cultivar, since it is self seeded maybe I've found a new one ;)
