The plant was small, when it arrived, but grew quickly. The flowers are gorgeous, and when they first open, they smell like heaven!!

Absolutely love this plant. It flowers continually and the flowers are just like the picture. The foliage is also pretty with a hint of bluish-purple. I grow it in a large container in full sun and it is surrounded by coleus. Just lovely.

A very stunning flower. The seed pods drop on the ground allowing for more starts. Does not grow out of control

My little purple people eater Review by Christie - Houston, TX

I bought this for my angel trumpet garden, it was super tiny when I got it. I was very disappointed and upset. The little plant grew to be around 5 inches or so tall and all of a sudden it created a beautiful flower. It didn't have any smell to it like my white angel trumpet does. Needless to say the beautiful flower makes up for the no smell. I have taken pictures and shown it to everyone, and everyone comments on how beautiful it is. After all my worries on if this little plant would make it or not, it is doing great with beautiful flowers.

I ordered this plant years ago and basically just stuck it in the ground and it was the most beautiful plant I have ever watched grow. Unfortunately I had to get divorced and moved and now my ex is reaping the yearly benefit from it. I will be getting another for my new home.
