NightSky, the rising star in garden centers
NightSky's white spots on the dark violet flowers look like an ever-changing star constellation. This cutting-raised newcomer is easy to grow and transport thanks to its semi-trailing plant habit. NightSky flowers very early and impresses with excellent branching.
