Porcelain Flower


Well, it’s true. The Clusia bud converted over this morning to a bloom.

Clusia orthoneura

I think it’s clear why they call this the porcelain flower, but if not, here’s a link to some porcelain figurines. Now is it clear? No? Well, how about this? What!?! Those porcelain flowers aren’t enough to convince you!?! I don’t know what more I can do to convince you of the propriety of the name “Porcelain Flower” for the Clusia. Maybe this will do it. Aha! Now you see what I’m talking about. And yet… Is there a picture of a porcelain cactus or succulent, just to be sure? There is! And it’s a triplet!

I’m feeling a bit silly right now. Sorry about that.

Come follow me after the break for a close up of this wacky and entertaining porcelain-like flower.
