How about this one? Kalanchoe (Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi 'Variegata')

It does resemble K Fedtschenkoi, except for the blooms.... K Fed has tubular blooms that are surrounded by a calyx. I have the Variegata form, and it blooms coral.

I am wondering if what you have is a hybrid or a cultivar of K blossfeldiana. This link has an image of K blossfeldiana

I saw one at Home Depot this morning that looked similar. It was tagged Kalanchoe fedtschenkoi 'Aurora Borelais' ... it's supposed to have pink flowers.

That may well be it, Lin. I just can't see very much variegation in Pniksch's image...it looks more green than I am used to seeing with K fedtschinkoi....but I certainly could be wrong.

Is this a new to you plant or have you had it for a while? K fedtschenkoi is a Bryophyllum, meaning it will produce plantlets from the leaf margins and even on the bloom spikes. Also, K fed leaves are fairly thick and rigid....they tend to snap rather than bend...Please do post a picture of the flowers when they open. That will certainly help narrow things down.
