Musical Note Plant, Morning Kiss, Witches Tongue (Rotheca incisa)
When in full bloom, my oh my, they are the tropic's equivalent of snowdrops!!!
Snowdrops with whiskers.
They flower repeatedly all the year round, isn't that great? If I wanted to propagate them, I could take the semi-hardwood portion of this herbaceous plant. Will try doing that when the plants are more mature.
I just love my Morning Kiss to bits, even if they are more maliciously referred to as Witches Tongue. I think I'm literally stifling them with love. They are being coddled by the coleus plants all round them.I am trying not to trim the red coleus, though, as they would certainly be bushier after a trim and further overwhelm my pretty rotheca incisa.
So, it may not be spring here in the tropics, but I have my whiskered spring flowers to give me a feeling of springtime here.
