The nursery where we saw the Banana Plant the other day
had lots of other interesting things. It was the first place I
think I have ever seen a double Kalanchoe! We have several
Kalanchoes and I really love they way they get covered in blooms,
as soon as I saw this guy I grabbed him, I knew he was coming home with me.
He now has a nice spot where he gets a shaft of light in the afternoon
through the glass door. That is when this shot was taken.
After watching a few flowers open it is interesting to see that the
blooms change color with age. (there are actually quite a few other flowers
that do this too.) They start out darker, almost red and fade
to a beautiful orange that looks similar to our Sun Star
Only a few of the flowers are variegated like this one. I would estimate there
are about 300 flowers on the plant and it is only in a four inch pot.
