My Kalanchoe is a pink color wonder what the name of IT is? [dunno]

I have made a bunch of starters from the one plant that the previous owner left. It was just a little ugly poor thing and now watch out it is hanging way over the edges. Seems like the more I cut it back and take starters the fuller it gets.

I love that Forsythia....sure wish I had more room to plant more trees. Wonder if it would grow in my neck of the woods. Have to do some research!

Karen, what zone are you in? Forsythias do well in zones 4-9. Some varieties only grow to about five feet tall with a four foot spread.

Your Kalanchoe is also a Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana, each color has a variety name but since Kalanchoes are more of a "florist" type plant they are seldom identified. Did you know that you could pin a Kalanchoe leaf to the soil and get a new clone from each notch in the leaf? [Wink]

Okay I live in zone 9 so they better have some at the local nursery! According to your write up you can espalier the tall varieties. Have you had any luck espaliering the shorter varities. Want to be courteous of my neighbors view and the shorter variety would work real well especially if espaliered by the wood fence! With lack of area I could shove more things in that way! Sneaky huh! I'll show you I can plant more things in a small area!!!!LOL

You know I have had a lot of success taking the branch of the Kalanchoe but I did try putting the leaves in side ways and try that. They just rotted. Ewwwwe Guess I will try laying them down and pinning them! Just think how many starters I can get that way! [shocked] The garden club will be floating in them.Ha Ha!
