This rare variety of famous wrightia is very special because of the growth habit. Even in habitat, it keeps form of a bonsai, a round nice dense shrub with tiny leaves and wonderfully scented flowers. It's not too slow growing, but the growth improves density of the shrub. In habitat, the plant stays under 3 ft tall, in pot you can keep it as small as you want and have a nice house plant as well. It is perfect for bonsai culture and for everyone who has limited space but wants to enjoy wrightia fragrance. The perfume is sweet and heavy. Requires regular watering and bright light. Can tolerate some cool weather for a short period, but sensitive to freezing.
