Yorkshire - I did!!!!

thank you meanie!!! its very nice to have a compliment!!

the google pictures showed the leaves more than the flowers but i can just see the leaves on yours now; so how long will it take for you to get 1,000 plants?

You're welcome!!!!

I reckon that they are probably harvested at the nursery for next years stock!

ah, crafty!! cant blame them though

they have 3 c-------s trees for sale in the local GC ~ potted up with new shoots on!!! [presumably last years]

3 Jul, 2012

 

What are c-------s trees Sticki?

3 Jul, 2012

 

those things you put up in december

That's a very beautiful Kalanchoe! Kalanchoe is one of my favorite flowering plants! Many are in bloom here, too. Fall and winter are when my favorite species bloom, though.

It's only July Sticki!!

There are some great Kalanchoe Delonix. What is your Kalanchoe of choice?

4 Jul, 2012

 

Well, you had to ask! lol!

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is my favorite for a groundcover. I've been using them as a small-scale ground cover for many years (I had many more in many different colors in my front yard in the San Francisco Bay Area).

Kalanchoe beharensis (Elephant's ear Kalanchoe) is my favorite shrub or tree type. It grows very tall here...although, it takes many decades to get to tree-like proportions. The largest ones I've seen here are 25ft/7.6m tall.

Here's my Kalanchoe pics:

I know but the GC are not doing well this year!! must be desperation!

4 Jul, 2012

 

Well - I did ask!!!

Sticki - they may be desperate, but it's no excuse!

4 Jul, 2012

 

nice looking trees with all the new growth on [they didnt mention the c---------s word].

Meanie:

Meanie:

That's great! Maybe when I post the unknown species of Kalanchoe which are blooming at my across-the-street neighbor's house, you can id them.

5 Jul, 2012

 

Dream on - I rely on you!!!

5 Jul, 2012

 

This is amazing Meanie. I never realised Kalanchoe could be so beautiful.

6 Jul, 2012
