Tree Succulent

(Madison, Wi)

I bought this succulent today and was wondering if you could help me identify what kind it is. It has several broad leaves at the base of the plant that are striped with red and green. Growing out the center of it is a thin tree like structure. It looks like there are buds at the ends of the "branches" and would really like to know if these eventually bloom?

Hi Michael,
What a fantastic looking plant! I have no idea what it is, hopefully another visitor will recognize it.

Based on the type of growth habit, I would say that the 'tree' part will bloom, but it's anybody's guess what they will look like.

I'll be interested to know what it looks like when in bloom; if possible, contact me and send me another picture!

Best of luck with your unusual plant!

Your plant seems to be Kalanchoe humilis ‘Desert Surprise.' You can either remove the stalk or leave it to flower as you like, and any resulting seeds can be grown.
