Comes in an 11cm diameter pot

Exacum trinervium ‘Sapphire’ is a bit of a mouthful, but luckily this plant is also known as the Persian Violet, and with that name, this little plant brings loads of colour to your collection. Its small and bold purple flowers have a bright yellow centre and are wonderfully fragrant, too.

The foliage on this annual is also lovely to look at, made up of small, shiny, and vivid green leaves.

The Persian violet loves bright light, but not direct light, so it would be best to keep it near rather than on a windowsill. They also enjoy cooler rooms and higher humidity, so misting is a good idea. Doing this will keep the flowers blooming for three to four months.
