About the theme flower Kalanchoe
Six different cultivars of Kalanchoe with a total number of forty thousand will be put on display to show greening, beautification, and environmental protection. Kalanchoe, the "flower of longevity", is native to Africa and loves the warm and sunny environment. This plant is known to the Chinese as "thousands and millions of red and purple", and is commonly purchased during the Chinese New Year for decorative purposes. They are popular because of their ease of propagation, low water requirements, and a wide variety of flower colors typically borne in clusters well above the vegetative growth.
