De­mand­ing the most at­ten­tion th­ese days are the Cock­tail Pinks, bred by Whet­man (whet­man­pinks.com). It took seven years for the com­pany to de­velop this range, which has large, scented flow­ers that last for ages in a vase. there are five va­ri­eties in all: ✿ Mo­jito, white with citrus cen­tre.

✿ Cherry Daiquiri, whose petals have a beau­ti­ful lilac blush. ✿ Candyfloss pink ‘Shirley tem­ple’, with a red cen­tral eye. ✿ Cosmopolitan, that has stun­ning red­cur­rant-coloured blooms. ✿ tequila sun­rise, ad­mired for its peach flow­ers with an apri­cot eye. Whet­man’s star Col­lec­tion is also a good cut flower, espe­cially the va­ri­ety ‘mys­tic,’ which has dark ma­roon petals edged with white and has a rich choco­late fra­grance – de­li­cious!
