Totally unique flowers, 2 - 3 purple and white trumpets set inside one another, create an unmatched vision of loveliness.

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.
