🟣 What is this Lavender Marble Perfume? Is it a possible combination?

The flowers of this rare hybrid - Brunfelsia isola, or Lavender Lady of the Night, are a "marble" twist of cream and purple, changing hue unpredictably. They are deliciously fragrant at night.

❓ Why such an unusual combination?

  • 🌟 Nocturnum flowers (fragrant at night) are mostly white or off-white. This rare Brunfelsia is a cross between B. americana and B. grandiflora.

  • 🌟Brunfelsia isola has the benefit of fragrant cream-colored brunfelsia and light purple color from the other parent. 👫

  • 🌟 Flowers change sometimes to cream-yellow, remaining purple margins.


👑 A must have 1 for rare fragrant plant collection!
