I grow a number of different forms of Watsonia wilmaniae. This peachy pink form came from Mark Fillan. The others came from Proper Plants.

Watsonia wilmaniae "A".

'A' is a good mid pink. It tends to hold on to the dead flowers for longer than I would like, so even in the middle of its flowering period, it is rather droopy and gloomy.

Watsonia wilmaniae "B".Rather like 'Tresco Dwarf Pink'.

Watsonia wilmaniae "D".

Smaller flowered than 'C', but I think it is the better plant. Unfortunately the flower spikes are a bit lax so there is still room for improvement.

Watsonia wilmaniae "E". The brightest pink of the forms I grow. It is a nice plant, but it also suffers from weak stems that flop over readily.
