Tagaytay Plant - May Flores
Alright, so we had a little trip to Tagaytay yesterday. Among other things, I was excited to ask the local gardeners what the name of my plant was. Look at picture 1, which is my plant starting to bloom. Look at pictures 2 and 3, which shows identical plants! According to the caretaker, the plant's name is May Flores. I know, it sounds like someone you might have gone to school with, but that's the name he said. Silly me, I should have asked for the scientific name because I certainly can't find it on the Internet. But the plant is popular in Tagaytay. Apparently, it comes in different colors too, from blue to lavender, from pink to white. I also asked for propagation techniques. He said it was just cuttings in soil. I'll try that soon! Cool huh? So whether that's the correct name or not, my Tagaytay plant is now known as May Flores.
