Kalanchoe sp.
Kalanchoe sp.
Kalanchoes are quite common in cultivation, both in succulent collections and as houseplants. The most frequently seen species is probably the velvety leaved and attractively marked K. tomentosa, but more common still are the many hybrids and cultivars based on K. blossfeldiana which flood garden centres at the right time of year. The plant pictured is a pale pink flowered form, though towards the back one branch appears to be reverting to the more shocking pink flowers of K. blossfeldiana.
