This is what it looked like when I first picked it and put it in water on my kitchen counter. The buds are huge!
Who knew that the furry 3 petaled hull was hiding a beautiful pink blossom!
It has been such a thrill to see the blossom emerging at last. In searching for the species I learned that they may be propagated by rooting the branch. I hope mine will root. My daughter told me to dip it in Cinnamon as that is an ingredient in root toning products. I will try it.
