Miss K's Flowers


Miss K's garden is blooming and she has posted some new photos. She is unsure of the plant's name and I can't for the life of me think of it! Yes I know my Grandma grows them. Yes I always sort of dismissed them until I saw them in flower while growing in hanging baskets, yes, they are called ......

Help!

Absolutely no idea, but gorgeous flowers nonetheless!

The plant looks like a zygo cactus, but the flowers wrong, unless it possibly is a 'double'

I was thinking zygo but after researching it (and having confirmation from Miss K herself) it definitely isn't. So I have absolutely no idea either - but someone will :-)

Joshua said...

The leaves aren't the same as zygo's..not segmented, just one long 'leaf'(you can see it in one of the pics)... will keep looking! Thanks guys!

Guess what???? I found someone who knew, admittedly she worked in a nursery and looked it up in a book, but here's some links to info anyways!

..... not a common name though, only found the botanical one.
