Plantidote of the Day 2012-08-20
Here's an odd one: This plant was marked "Angelica," but in looking at pictures of Angelicas online, this one looks nothing like them. In this shot, the flowers resemble kalanchoe, but I'm 99% certain this is something else. The question is -- what?
Since I don't have an image of the foliage, the only other clue I can offer is that the plant was in a garden center and clearly intended for outdoor planting, not a houseplant. Anyone recognize it?
