I can see where he got the firework's name, that's really what they remind you of. The flower stalks shoot up with little offshoots and the blooms are little balls until they open up to 3 petal pink blooms.
Of course, the puppies kept moving the plant and so it was challanging to get a shot that wasn't blurry! Here's a close up too of the leaves.
When the blooms are done, the seed pod remains and it's about the size of a pinhead. I also stuck a piece that a puppy who will remain unmentioned ripped off in some water and it's rooting quite nicely. The only thing irritating me right now is that I have no clue what it is.
Anyone have any idea?
That is a really pretty plant. I just love the dainty little pink flowers. I hope you get a name and the puppies leave it alone!ReplyDelete
Sorry no idea, i think the nursery is your best bet or a local university??ReplyDelete
I think it is Jewels of Opar. I recently received one at a plant swap. I love it!!ReplyDelete

I like the plant! I had a mother come over to get her daughter and she could not get over my succulents. I told her that my Mandy is the one that got me hooked.ReplyDelete
Thanks for helping solve the mystery, Karen and Amy!ReplyDelete
