Today I was given a plant.
To me, it looks like a bonsai tree with a bunch of rose-like flowers on it (forced to bloom, not naturally blooming).
to get 'technical' though, I'd say
leaved shaped like.. elongated "leaf shape", i guess. slightly fuzzy. they seem to do the fibonacci thing growing out of the stem, and then right under the flowers they're more clumped up.
most stems end in flowers, 1-5, usually about 3
the flowers are pink, and sortof like some freak rose/hibiscus blend- the multiple layers of ruffly petals, but that bell-shape and with 1 "thingy" sticking out of the center.
It's maybe a foot tall, and has about two inches of exposed 'trunk' at the bottom before everything starts growing horizontally or at angles, so maybe some sort of mini bush? top part is maybe a foot and a half across.
The flowers basically crown the entire thing, there isn't a whole bunch of green showing from a top view.
I've tried to google for a key, but i just end up with a lot of how-to websites for how to use a dichotomous key, or a super-technical one.( Collapse )
