Why are this flower called Magdalena ?
Well, we have decided to name our flowers after some Super Power Women and Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo (known as Frida Kahlo) is definitely a woman of strength and talent. She was a Mexican painter best known for her uncompromising and brilliantly coloured self-portraits that deal with such themes as identity, the human body, and death.
As a child, she got ill from polio and that left her with a slight limp, a chronic ailment she would endure throughout her life. Kahlo was furthermore involved in a bus accident, which injured her in such a matter, that she had to undergo more than 30 medical operations in her lifetime. During her very slow recovery, Kahlo taught herself to paint, and she read frequently, studying the art of the old masters.
She truly managed to make all her pain and suffering into beautiful and interesting works of art.
