Are you in for a little Calandiva 101? Its origin stems from the Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, a genus of about 125 species of tropical succulent flowering plants, native to south and east Africa and south-east Asia. It was introduced to the world in 1932, by Robert Blossfeld, hence the name. Think mostly mad and magnificent Madagascar, if you want to picture this tropical beauty in the wonderful wilderness.
Now, while the Kalanchoe in itself is quite lovely, Fides decided to ‘boldy go where no man has gone before’ (because that’s how this company rolls) and create a new variety that doubles the fun: Calandiva. Where each flower of Kalanchoe only has four petals, Calandiva by Fides has a large, full flower head with multiple layers of petals that make the flowers look like little roses. It’s a very attractive flower-in-pot plat, even when in bud. That makes Calandiva a one-of-a-kind-Kalanchoe deserving of her fabulous nickname: the Diva. Now, quickly order some to be able to offer your costumers the lovely Diva!
