Native to Tanzania, Neobenthamia gracilis is a small plant, typically 2 to 5 ft tall. It thrives in full sun or semi-shade and requires regular watering in order to stay healthy and blossom. An evergreen shrub-like perennial, it's an excellent choice for those who want to inject some vibrancy into their garden with the help of fragrant white, off-white flowers.

Neobenthamia gracilis is native to tropical climates, so it will require some extra care in colder climates, especially in pot cultures. If you plan to grow it outdoors, then you should choose a place that's sheltered from strong winds and provide it with enough sunshine, ensuring it's getting plenty of natural light in order to stay healthy. The water needs of the plant depend on the location and season. During the hot months, it might require more water, with moderate irrigation when temperatures are cooler. Moreover, be sure to keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy.

Overall, growing Neobenthamia gracilis is not a difficult task, and its beauty is easily worth the effort. Its flowers will create an unforgettable sight, especially during the warmer months when the flowers are in full bloom.
