Kalanchoe beauverdii Kalanchoe beauverdii
Code: 90652
Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Bryophyllum beauverdii), Beauverd's Widow's Thrill, False Hoya

New! This is a very unusual kalanchoe that is sure to attract attention. It's one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe schizophylla. This succulent climber has gray wiry stems and green narrow leaves turning purple-black in high light with adventitious plantlets often forming on the leaf tips. Its hanging flowers are bell-shaped and rather large compared to the slender stems. Blooming in clusters, they are an unusual grayish green color with fine purple speckles. Flowering is in the winter and spring months. The wiry stems and hooked leaves help it vigorously scramble and twine upwards. It can swallow surrounding plants if not pruned to keep it under control. So it is best to grow it on a trellis to 8 feet or in a hanging basket where it can be allowed to cascade. Grow in full sun or bright shade and allow it to get dry between waterings. It generally likes warmth with dry cool frost-free winters. It's native to south and southwestern Madagascar, where it is found in dry shrub-land forests from sea level up to 2,750 feet in elevation. Crassulaceae

Code: 90649
Price: $11.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Bryophyllum manginii), Chandelier Plant, Beach Bells

New! This succulent plant displays spoon-shaped glossy green fleshy leaves, turning reddish in full sun, with trailing red-tinged stems. It blooms in late winter or early spring with dangling clusters of salmon-red 1 inch bell-shaped flowers. Growing up to 12 inches tall and wide, it makes an easy to grow ideal hanging basket. It also can be grown as an epiphyte, as it does in its native Madagascar. Best grown in a bright sunny location with protection from the midday sun in well-drained potting soil. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe pinnata Kalanchoe pinnata
Code: 80169
Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Bryophyllum pinnatum), Life Plant, Chandelier Plant, Hawaiian Air Plant, Oliwa Ku Kahakai

This succulent plant is often sold to Hawaiian tourists as a souvenir oddity because of its ability to grow small plantlets on its leaf margins, even if just pinned to a curtain in the air. Clustered greenish white to reddish flowers dangle from the flower stalk, as on a chandelier. Fast growing, drought tolerant 2 to 3 feet high. Tolerates almost any conditions, sun or shade, but likes moisture with good drainage. Easy popular house plant. Can also be grown outdoors in mild climates (no frost), but can be invasive in the tropics. Has many tribal and herbal medicinal uses. Naturalized in the Hawaiian Islands, but probably native to Madagascar. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx Kalanchoe porphyrocalyx
Code: 90536
Price: $11.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Bryophyllum porphyrocalyx), Pearl Bells Kalanchoe

Pearl Bells is a compact, bushy succulent growing up to 8 inches high with slender leaves that are rubbery and irregularly notched. It's very showy with clusters of nodding reddish urn-shaped flowers with creamy colored tips on slender purple-tinted stems. Blooms heavily during the shorter days of late winter for about 7 weeks. Give it bright light or morning sun, well-drained soil, and protection from frost. Allow to dry between waterings. It grows on the ground or up in the trees as an epiphyte in the rainforest areas of central and northeastern Madagascar. Similar to and often confused with Kalanchoe 'Wendy' and 'Lucky Bells'. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe prolifera Kalanchoe prolifera
Code: 90521
Price: $9.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Bryophyllum proliferum), Blooming Boxes, Tree Kalanchoe

This interesting giant succulent from Madagascar grows 6 to 9 feet tall with its unbranched 1½ inch thick jointed stems holding opposite pairs of fleshy green pinnately compound leaves. Fairly fast growing with flowers appearing after a couple of years that have greenish yellow box shaped bracts and greenish orange flowers in late winter. Later these yield numerous plantlets on the flower stalks. Plant in light shade. Drought resistant and can take a mild frost of short duration. Under certain conditions it might be somewhat invasive because of its prolific production of plantlets. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe schizophylla Kalanchoe schizophylla
Code: 90653
Price: $11.95

Quantity in Basket: none

(Syn.: Bryophyllum schizophyllum)

New! This is a very curious kalanchoe, as it is one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe beauverdii. Its smooth leaves are deeply cut with a fern-like appearance turning orangish in bright light. It climbs by means of its hook-like finely divided mature leaves. The stems are thin curling up to 12 feet or more in length. The seldom seen inflorescence consists of pendulous, bell-shaped lavender-grey flowers in spring to summer. It seems to be given to vegetative growth so that flowering is rare, especially if frequent pruning has been necessary. The variable leaves are very decorative and the plants are easy to grow. In its native Madagascar it is a hemiepiphyte (seedlings growing in the canopy as an epiphyte, later with roots growing down into the ground). It is found in rocky and shady brush in central Madagascar from 3 to 5 thousand feet in elevation. All parts are toxic, a rarity in the family Crassulaceae. Give it bright shade with extra humidity, well-drained potting soil and water sparingly. Grow it as an epiphyte, in a hanging basket, or as an interesting climber on a trellis. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae
