Hi everyone!

I recently received this lovely plant as a gift and it was blooming beautifully, however when I came home tonight the stem had completely broken in half! I'm still not quite sure how this was possible ...maybe the wind by the window was too strong?

I would really appreciate it if anyone could tell me what type of plant this is just for the sake of knowing how to possibly save it! Thank you so much for your time~

Don't need to link to pictures from other gardening sites, especially that one.
We have lots of photos right here in the database.

Beautiful plant! Lovey dubby

That's one I've never heard of; I thought it was some sort of cute little miniature tulip! Green Grin!

Abeille, Depending upon where you live, they will naturalize in your yard.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
