Hi all,

I have clumps of this Tillie and it puts on a great show in flower. But who or what is it?

Flower spike starts off pale and starts blushing as it develops.

Later the spikes are a brilliant pink but slightly extended. I am waiting for the flowers to develop,

The old flower spike quickly looses its bright bract colour and becomes greenish white.

Any Ideas?
