What's softer than a Teddy Bear and sticks around longer than candy and cut flowers? Kalanchoes! It was plants again this year for Valentine's Day. Fuzzy ones.
Kalanchoe Tomentosa, those dark leaf edges are so distinctive.
Kalanchoe Beharensis 'Fang'. It looks quite benign compared to its name.
So soft, with crinkly brown edges.
The kalanchoes are from Yeya's and were grown by a lady in Mexico whose son brings them up to San Antonio to sell. They weren't labeled so I looked them up; let me know if you disagree with my conclusion.
I did get a rose for Valentine's Day. This 'Ambience' container rose on the deck bloomed just in time for the big day.
Our tradition of having at least one rose blooming on Valentine's Day is still going strong.
Happy Valentine's Day!
