This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Hello Again Everyone,

We decided to add another installment to the 'Fanciful Forest Collection'. These shrubs were cloned from the 'Fanciful Forest Breadfruit Tree' using the Maxis outdoor shrubs, the shrubs have been enlarged and recoloured for your gardening enjoyment. They are four-tile pot plants and to reduce the number of objects needed in your game catalogue and downloads folder, the pots are slaved to the 'Fanciful Forest Breadfruit Tree' pot found HERE, you can find 20 recolours of the pot HERE. These plants will be a colourful addition to your Sims' Residential, Business and University lots.

ETA: Klaartje has uploaded some beautiful recolours of our 'Fanciful Forest Pot', check them out HERE.

These are base game compatible - no EP's or SP's required!

Found: Buy Mode > Decorative > Plants. Price: §166.

Subsets: 2, the shrub itself and the pot is slaved to the 'Fanciful Forest Breadfruit Tree' pot as mentioned above. Room/Environment Rating: 2.

Please make sure you have the 'Fanciful Forest Breadfruit Tree' in your game or the pot will flash blue.

Potted Hibiscus - 3248
