Jewels of Opar (Talinum paniculatum)(aka Fameflower) This is a very striking annual species in most regions of Canada. Dense masses of tiny pink flowers that make an excellent cut flower in arrangements and bouquets. Has become a favourite of our family recently! Seed sourced form our friends at the Secret Garden in Blyth Ontario. The very attractive tassels of pink flowers are followed by decorative shiny ruby-globed seed pods. Makes an excellent mass, border or container planting and can tolerates dry conditions. Plants reach an average of 20- 24” and will self-seed.
