A couple of weeks back I picked up two String of Bananas plants at Home Depot greenhouse here in Chicago. I already owned String of Pearls (Senecio Radicans) and have been wanting to add this plant to my cacti and succulent collection. Since I've owned my String of Pearls it has flowered twice for me and I didn't know until the flower had died.
Today I went into check on the new plants and saw that my String of Bananas was flowering. I quickly remembered that the flowers were suppose to be fragrant so I picked it up and sure it enough they smelled like cinnamon. I spent a good five minutes just inhaling the wonderful aroma from this flower and tried to snap a few pictures. Unfortunately we're back to winter here in Chicago and there's a lot of cold but very little natural sunlight and only managed to get one photo of this flower that I thought was usable for my gardening blog.
This is my first time participating in Green Thumb Sunday and I couldn't wait for it to actually be Sunday to share this wonderful succulent on my blog. I only wish gardening blogs were Scratch-n-Sniff so everyone could experience this flower.
