K for Kalanchoe in Paris

The original Kalanchoe was brought to Paris from Africa in 1927. In 1928 seed merchant Robert Blossfeld from the German town of Potsdam saw this Kalanchoe and turned it into a houseplant, which he introduced in 1932. His name was also attached to the plant: Kalanchoe blossfeldiana. The well-known houseplants are referred to as blossfeldiana breeds by growers. (via HERE)


Wish I had a Paris apartment to display these flowers/plants in!

Les fleurs petites ou grandes apportent tant de bonheur... Les toutes petites que nous croisons sur les sentiers de nos promenades ou dans le creux des murs de pierre sont si délicates lorsque nous prenons le temps de les observer...
Merci pour ces belles et généreuses photos Fifi...
