Hi Philip, that one has me stumped! I don't know what this plant is, but judging from the flowers, it could possibly be some kind of Kalanchoe, but I've never seen that kind of growth on the stem.

I'll post the pictures on some of my boards and forums, and see if anyone recognizes it. Stay tuned!

Jacki,

Thanks for posting & for your reply.

Meanwhile, I found the ID for this one: Monadenium ritchiei subsp. nyambense (Euphorbiaceae) (...unless you go with the taxonomists who lump this into Euphorbia; "whatever....")

Thanks for the update, Phillip!
