Those are Kalandiva cultivars, a bit fussier to grow than regular Kalanchoe.

Identification please!

Could it be Ditrysinia fruticosa?

unable to identify this plant

It's Phacelia tanacetilfolia, a wildflower largely cultivated for its attraction to bees. Not lucky in the last attempt to grow them (a few years ago), but gonna give it a try, it is very pretty  (yours too!).

Can you identify this plant please

Liriodendron, I really dunno much about wood, but I know Europe is the greatest ipe wood importer from Brazil. The name of the tree in my house is Handroanthus (new name!) heptaphyllus, and the density of the wood is 870 kg/cubic metre. Mine has endured a lot: there is a zillion power and telephone cables hung through it and recently one of these caught fire and burnt some branches ! When I was 12 a reckless driver hit the trunk and I had to wind the bark with a bandage to prevent the tree from wilting. The neighbour wanted it felled to give their shop more visibility and even tried to fool the council by phoning them in our name!

Really boring question

If these non-ericaceous plants do not demand calcium to thrive, they might even like it. You can provide calcium in the form of lime (which is usually cheap) as a supplement.

The truth is, anywhere else I´m sort of a smart alec (to be polite...), so I decided for a change of my personality and simply not know much .

I'm sorry, Pat, but I posted the pictures and went to sleep  ! Anyway, my time zone is four hours before GMT. The tree, BTW, is ipe (tabebuia), here's a picture of it in a former year:

Loana, I don't remember being rude. Thank you, anyway.

Beautiful pictures everyone, congratulations for your efforts !

Pat, your climate is a little like mine (though obviously colder in winter...). But it begins to rain sooner here in São Paulo.
