helo saw this plant in san diego

Short dwarflike plant rounded leaves w purple or red on the end

This is one of the best plants for giving a strikingly bright colorful splash, and making an impact with the tall flower stalk.

This is Kalanchoe thyrsiflora, also known as Flapjacks (because it looks just like a stack of pancakes) or the Paddle Plant, because the leaves each resemble a canoe paddle.

It may look dwarf like now, but they are really a large plant when well grown, reaching over 16" across, and the flower stalk can be over 4' tall - not a plant for the faint of heart.

Happy Succulent Growing!
