    Lovely pic as always, and what a beautiful plant! Love the contrast between the 'twigs' and the flowers. How long do the flowers on these lasts? and are those more buds on the nodes?

    cheers

    Default Thank you, lebouc and bench.

    Those are sites where there were flowers, previously. The plant has been with me for only three months, and it was in bloom when it got here. I was amazed that it produced a second set of blooms so soon. Flowers last about a week, at least, surprisingly long for such tiny thangs.

    Merry Christmas, you two. How different is Christmas down under, bench? Puto bungbong and bibingka, too?
