Rare Variety – This variety is difficult to find anywhere due to these reasons
- These tender varieties are rare because they do not have a wide enough audience due to their lack of hardiness and are overlooked by the big growers.
- Singing Tree Gardens has made these rare varieties our passion and remain committed to producing them for future generations. Currently we are the only source in the USA for these tender, FRAGRANT plants.
