So the new white Keng Hwa flower plant that I bought from World Farm finally decided to bloom! I was intrigued to see that the flowers are smaller than what we’re used to, and that there are subtle differences in them.
These flowers look so pristine because they’re all white. Ghostly, almost… And, the petals are shorter and broader than our original plant’s. The perfume of the flowers was also not as strong, and it appears to be a more willing multi-flower bloomer.
Our original Keng Hwa flower has the eye-catching red and yellow stamen, and an incredibly strong aroma when it blooms. Our usual guide to when they’re blooming when we don’t expect it, is the heady perfume that invades the house late at night – something that the smaller flowers can’t do as well.
