Very pretty medium pink colored blooms with petals that look like tissue paper. Does great in a container indoors by a bright 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).
