Achillea “Lilac Beauty”

This is a recently purchased achillea called “Lilac Beauty”.  It’s not lilac is it?  In real life it is a lot darker and I would call it dark pink, although I’m sure all you artists could think of something a little more poetic.  This was a bit of a disappointment and more fuel for Bosswoman who insists (in a gentle caring way) that I cannot do subtle.  It is also unfortunately planted in the Pastel Bed.  I love this colour but we already have “Cerise Queen”  careering around the garden and we don’t need a similar plant.   I have told the nursery and sent them a photo so hopefully they will try again.  Either that or they will try to convince me that this is in fact what lilac looks like.  The best laid plans of mice and gardeners.
