First to flower!

It may be a fluke, but the first Tradescantia to flower is ‘Little Doll’, but not the parent plant, one of the divisions I took a month ago on 26th March.

Perhaps the act of division caused a reaction which in turn promoted flowering a month earlier than expected. Perhaps the additional warmth and protection of a cold greenhouse brought it on compared to the parent outside and exposed to the current warm days and cold nights.

Whatever the reason or the cause, it is a joy to see the first flowers and the promise of a thousand more to come!
