Jade Plant Blooms in Slow Motion
I’ve had Jade Plants (Crassula ovata) almost my entire life. They are perhaps one of the first plants I tended, given to me by my father as a leaf to root. All this time I had no idea that they flowered. Then in January my Jade Plant produced little dark pink buds. Finally, after about a month the first bud opened to reveal a light pink and white star shaped flower with five stamen. In a few days the rest of the buds opened. It’s been over a week and the flowers are still going strong. Something new every day.
