Sentimental Memory
by Donna, May 11, 2017

A fond childhood memory for me from my grandmother. This plant was bought x 3! I have three containers that these will be in on my patio by a fire pit area. The plant is healthy and the flowers will be showing in the near future. Love these flowers of Blue Balloons!
