Hello, I bought this flowering plant from poundland earlier this week and I would really like to know what it is!! it didnt come with any identifying labels or anything but there were a variety of colours of the same plants there.

Poundland? Is that in the UK? Why not bring the plant to the store and ask them to identify it for you?

Yes its the UK, the staff in pretty much all poundlands have no idea about their flowering stock. They let most of them die.

My only hope is identification forums such as this!!

Your new plant is a Kalanchoe.

They do look very similar!! Would you know of the type of Kalanchoe my little plant is? its very pretty!!

How do I look after it? Is it okay as an indoor potted plant or should it be planted outside? Does it grow back every year or die off after the season ends?

This is all very exciting :D

Daisy is right a Kalanchoe! I agree
@NattW They like to be outside in the summer, but are not cold hardy. Bring them in winter. For Kalanchoe to bloom next year they require a period of darkness. If you accidentally ever break a piece off just stick it in moist soil and it will root. Very easy beautiful plants. Nice choice you made. They are addictive you will be buying other colors. May many blessings come your way! Welcome!

Those with the funkily (sorry, spell check, I need to say that, even if it's not a word) lobed leaves and double blooms are called 'Calandiva.' There are several colors. http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=kalanchoe+calandi...
