Description

Polianthes are widely known for their very nice fragrance. What makes Polianthes tuberosa 'Pink Sapphire' even more distinctive are the beautiful double pink florets it produces. After doing many research and a University project in Vietnam, we are proud to offer you 'Pink Sapphire' – a true winner and very limited in supply! As an added bonus, Polianthes tuberosa 'Pink Sapphire' will also give a good show on your patio if planted in an attractive pot. They’re easy to grow but do like a warm spot in the sun.
