For the fragrance. The enchanting fragrance spreads throughout your garden and your home.

They come in bunches. They have multiple blooms.

Isn’t it exciting? Few things to take care. Pot them in the biggest pot you have. Add sufficient compost while potting them. Add compost every month for initial 4 months and then once every 45-60 days.
