Ceropegia Sandersonii


By Meanie

Ceropegia Sandersonii (Ceropegia sandersonii)

I've just noticed something - some flowers are five "lobed", whilst others have six!
This is a composite photo that I put together to demonstrate this.

I could use a little luck Greenthumb!
Go on, cheer us up - how cold is it in Alaska?

LOL....-29C. Sunrise 10:30am; Sunset, 3:30pm. I'm looking at the snow shots and wishing it were that warm. :-)

We had a high of -3c today!

7 Dec, 2010 Stay in and have cocoa! (I hope you see the end of the cold soon)

LOL you two!! True though Meanie, it is 'sobering' when you realise that other places have arctic weather EVERY winter! GT, here in Angus, Scotland we had-9 today. Don't ask me how cold overnight, I don't want to know! They are saying it may reach 0 on Friday! Now, Meanie, this reminds me of my clematis!..yes, I know, not an obvious comparison, but clematis do this as well. Some flowers having 5 sepals, some six, some seven....I find that interesting!

Greenthumb - the cold is supposed to have gone by the end of the week......then back again early next week!
Karen - there seem to be quite a few like this on Flickr, so maybe it's "normal". It's a climber like Clematis, so they have a couple of things in common!
Amy - could it be that you're on to something!
