Pink Perfection


After so many years I have finally found the name of this beautiful succulent plant. Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana or Widow’s Thrill which is native to Madagascar. I still have not found why nicknamed Widow’s Thrill, supposedly for their bright colors. It symbolizes endurance, lasting affection, and popularity. The species name, blossfeldiana, was given in honor of Robert Blossfeld, a German hybridizer who in 1932 introduced it in Potsdam from Madagascar.
