So pretty and a lovely muted red color. Bought this as a container plant last spring and it did really well in my bright office window.

The Magic series are dwarf plants that only grow 6-8" with a spread of 4-6" and have double rosebud-shaped blooms. Plants go dormant after blooming.

From Bachman's (local flower shop) plant tag for this cultivar: need bright light, keep moist at all times while avoiding wilt and saturation, cooler temperatures will prolong flower life (optimum temperature is 60-65 degrees F).
