Re: Trick of light?


Hmmmm.....says:
Flower/Fruit: Cluster of double, pale pink or white flowers in March April;
then goes on to cultivars - but there was no cultivar name on mine:
Afterglow, Daybreak, and Pink Shell have Pink flowers
Cascade white & White Fountain have snowy white flowers
Hmmmmmm......
I could have sworn mine wee snowy white all these years.
