The New Plant Family Legolaceae

Jun 18, 2021 01:09 pm

I’ve recently become acquainted with a new plant family, Legolaceae.

There appear to be at least six species in this plant family, all from the genus Lego. The poster above shows these six new plants in flower. They resemble Roses, Asters, Daisies, Poppies, Snapdragons, and Lavenders.

Like the Lego® Bonsai I found earlier this year, most of these plants are easy to grow, needing no water, sunlight, or soil.

As cut flowers, they make a lovely flower bouquet.

However, they have no scent.

There is still quite a bit to discover about the plant family Legolaceae.

For example, we haven’t been able to determine if these leaves belong to a different species in the genus Lego or are part of one of the species I’ve already identified.

We will probably never know, since they are unlikely to flower after cutting.

There are also rumors that Lego birdofparadise will soon be on the market. I don’t think I’ll get it, though it is tempting, as then I’d have the complete collection of the genus Lego! (What would one call a collection of plants in the genus Lego? A Legotum?)

Perhaps I’ll acquire the Lego® bird of paradise this winter, when I’ll have more time to devote to studying it.

In the meantime, the rest of my garden requires some attention and I won’t lack for things to do. Unlike plants in the genus Lego, which tend to grow slowly and once in flower stay in flower, the rest of the plants in my garden require watering, pruning, and deadheading!

(Now, be a good gardener and check out the video I posted about these Lego® flowers!)
