smells delightful!
by Maryette, October 22, 2017

I bought 3 of these, put them in a shady spot that has good drainage yet stays moist...these lovelies didn't make it. I'm not the best gardener so maybe somebody else will have better luck with it...but these are magnificent - beautiful leaves, glorious scent!
