A fun story. Twelve years ago Steven's (my husband) Grandmother Matilda (just before she passed away) gave me cuttings from her lipstick plant. She had had her plant for many years, so I feel my plant has quite a heritage! My plant has grown and filled out a lot over these years and she bloomed this month for only the second time ever in 12 years. I wanted to share a photo of this intriguing plant and its blooms. Thanks, Matilda!
