This pretty creature is Kalanchoe 'Pearl Bell' which is often grown as a potted houseplant or for on a patio.

They have these amazing flowers, most commonly in clusters. You can see more about this plant here.

Hope this helps with caring for your beautiful plant.

Hi Brian - that one is a mystery - I've never seen this plant, and I would have remembered it if I had. What a lovely and unusual flower.

You may have access to some very different plants than what we can get in the northern hemisphere - this is what plant explorers were after when they went to other lands to bring back odd and unusual plants.

I'll keep looking, but nothing about this plant rings a bell with me. Do you know anything more about it, such as where it originated?

Happy Succulent Growing!
Jacki

I believe this plant to be Kalanchoe manginii, with examples such as Tessa, Wendy and Shinano. The one in question is Kalanchoe manginii Wendy.
