I'm not sure which Kalanchoe it is Leann, but I have it in my gardens and It puts up beautiful tall flower spikes up to 3 ft. from my experience with showy orange flowers. Smiling

Defiantly kalanchoe!

I forget the species, it's often confused with mother of a thousand..but isn't...

Nip of a leaf, it will undoubtedly pop a bunch if babies out of the edge of the leaf!

I like the dark stems! I have one very similar but it's plain green
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!

Perhaps Kalanchoe pinnata.

Leann: Have you seen blooms on the plant? It sure looks like Kalanchoe pinnata to me also: Cathedral Bells (Kalanchoe pinnata)

Thats it Song and Lin! I couldn't remember the slang name, but a lady wrote an article regarding the same in The Daytona News Journal mentioning it several months back...

You all seem pretty familiar with em, are the dark petioles typical?
I'm wondering if its the same as what I have or not...

Thank you so much! No, I have not seen flowers yet. We had mother of thousands in my yard at our last house, it was kind of pretty, but really annoying when it kept trying to invade my veggie patch :)

I I'm all ears! ya! I have a related plant that is wanting to engulf my little xeriscape bed. When the thousands are all tiny they actually make an interesting groundcover look and blend with the rocks, but to get rid of them I have to let them get large enough to yank.
