Soto Classic - Shade - Narrow
Timeless and elegant, Soto Classic combines formal structure and soft blooms. This collection will complement any outside space and has been designed to sit in both urban and rural spaces. The multi tones of the green foliage create a sense of depth and the purple flowers are loved by pollinators.
The narrow collections are suitable for borders approximately 0.5 – 1m deep (from front to back).
Make sure you take your plants out of their packaging as soon as you can and give them a good drink. Check out our Watering Guide in the Soto Journal for tips and tricks.
