I initially thought this was Kalanchoe 'Kewensis', and then it flowered ...I thought K. 'Kewensis' had pink flowers? Is the flower color actually variable or is this a different variety?

Thanks!

Look at Kalanchoe laciniata

Does it come in various colors, or is the one pic at the database entry really K. blossfeldiana?

Ya, it looks like there are several things wrong with the NGA entry for K. laciniata. First, I haven't found anywhere else that lists it as a synonym for K. x kewensis, and second, its description on the Kew website cites K. laciniata as having yellow to orange flowers, not pink. I'm think the image on the NGA entry is incorrect.
