“The more you see it, the more you fall in love with it.” Pink Frills is nothing but an ever-growing beauty, named after its pink edges, that appear when they bloom. It’s a delightful experience to watch this plant grow. Its soft and chubby leaves transition between a vibrant palette of colors, from purple to grey to green to blue, all with a hint of pink in their crinkled edges.
