Golden Girl Blooms Again


Wave Hill’s Cactus House, the right-hand wing of Wave Hill’s Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory, currently features a number of interesting winter-flowering kalanchoes. These sun-loving members of the jade family delight visitors with their diversity of flowers and textural foliage. This is the first time in years that the Kalanchoe tomentosa ‘Golden Girl’ has bloomed here at Wave Hill, and I think it’s been worth the wait. I took this shot yesterday, March 12.
