Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe  (pronounced kal-un-KOH-ee) are native to Madagascar and tropical Africa. Kalanchoes have oval shaped shaped leaves with scalloped edges with textures that are sometimes powder-coated, or glossy; gray-frosted to dark green in appearance.

Kalanchoe produce small clusters of four-petalled flowers that bloom from the tops of their stems during the winter season (in Australia). The flowers are vibrant in colour; from hot pink, bright yellow, orange or red which can brighten up any bleak looking garden during winter.

They are extremely hardy succulents and can grow well in both full sun and partial shade conditions.
