Calandrinia grandiflora

The flower buds of Calandrinia grandiflora always remind me of snakeheads. They hang down from the stem and raise themselves up one at a time to open in all their bright pink glory. Being such open flowers mean the bees love them.

These tough plants grow quickly and are perfect for rockeries, gravel beds or containers.
