Green leaves with scalloped pink edges & small pink flowers

by Valerie

I'd love to know what this plant is. We got it in a flower basket and it's so hardy and keeps growing and growing.

It has green leaves with scalloped pink edges.
It gets clumps of small pink, 4 petaled, flowers.

I have put in in a larger pot several times and it now looks so overgrown I guess I'll have to do it again.

I really love the plant and would like to know what it is so I can better care for it.


Drought Smart Plants reply: This lovely character is Kalanchoe blossfeldiana, or Flaming Katy.

You can see more on the bottom of this page: Kalanchoe species.

Many others before you have asked about this plant, which is rightfully popular due to the bright flowers, and the ease with which it can grow from cuttings.

Best of luck with Flaming Katy!
