picture of kalanchoe with pink flowers

A tropical succulent plant with broad, emerald green, serrated leaves, and clusters of flowers that stand above the foliage.

The cheerful flowers bloom repeatedly, and come in bright shades of white, yellow, pink and red. They grow slowly, taking 5 years to reach maturity. A 6 week winter dormancy ensures future spring flowers. With low maintenance and high visual impact, they are a great gift for beginners.
