Brachyscome Fresco™ Purple
Brachyscome Fresco™ Purple
Fresco Purple has finely textured foliage and small blue flowers that last all season long. Compact and upright-mounded plants prefer cooler temperatures. High light will produce the best habit for brighter, larger blooms than Enduring Blue, which is replaced by Brasco Violet.
FRESCO is a U.S. trademark of Danziger Flower Farm.
