This is a lovely shape and a very healthy plant but completely dark pink and not as the picture on your website. I bought it as part of the coconut ice collection but I think the wrong collection was sent although the names on the individual packets were as ordered.

This was more pink than white. I bought it as part of the 'Coconut Ice' collection. I am not sure that I have the correct variety.
